Brown Sugar Honey Glazed Carrots are sweet, tender, and an easy Thanksgiving or holiday side dish! I love roasting the glazed carrots in the oven because they get nice and caramelized. Just toss baby carrots or sliced whole carrots with a few simple ingredients then pop in the oven to roast.


  • 32 ounces baby carrots
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar, or light brown
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves


  1. Preheat - Start by getting the oven preheated to 425 degrees F.
  2. Toss Carrots - Toss the baby carrots with the other ingredients. If your carrots are cold from the fridge, then the melted butter will re-solidify. That's okay! Just toss so it's evenly combined as best as you can and it will melt again in the oven.
  3. Spread on Sheet Pan - Spread the carrots out onto a sheet pan. Make sure to scrape everything out of the bowl so you get all of the butter and sugar.
  4. Roast Carrots - Roast the carrots for 20-25 minutes until they are tender and glazed. Give them a toss every ~5-10 minutes so that the glaze evenly coats the carrots. To add some extra caramelized bits, you can broil them for a few minutes at the end.
  5. Serve - Taste and add a little salt/pepper, if needed. Transfer the glazed carrots to a serving bowl and make sure to scrape any of the glaze over the carrots. Enjoy!


Brown sugar glazed carrots are best eaten immediately after roasting them. You can store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight continuer for up to 5 days. For best results, roast them in the oven or warm in a buttered skillet.
