I made these for my husband's Thanksgiving deal at work. Very easy, and really delicious. I used whole baby carrots.

Not the healthiest way to prepare carrots, but they were delicious! I didn't have molasses, so I just left it out. I didn't have shallots, so I just used a regular onion and everything was great. Will definitely make it again for a special occasion side dish. Thanks for sharing it!

Yummy! This was very good! I used a little more molasses than I should have, it just gushed out of the bottle! I used green onions instead of shallots. Thank you for posting this!
