Recipe by Parsley

Makes a nice Thanksgiving/Xmas side dish, but good anytime.

Top Review by ladypit

I wanted an extra side dish for dinner last night and found this. I used 1/2 tbsp. of splenda brown and a lot less butter. The craisins kind of broke up and were not terribly attractive, but these carrots had a wonderful sweetness. The kids were happy to eat them. Thanks!
