Reviews for Glazed Ranch Carrots
"Way too sweet for our taste. Will cut sugar next time."
"These were really delicious! We'll definitely behaving these again."
"Made these for Thanksgiving & I really liked them. It was nice to have something other than plain old carrots. I did like the other reviews said & used only 1 envelope of ranch & only used 1/4 c. of brown sugar & butter. My family liked them as well!"
"Excellent! The kids even loved them."
"You will be surprised at how good this simple dish tastes!! The first time I made as directed. My suggestion, take all the other reviews suggestion of half the glaze. It makes a lot. Simply cutting back on the glaze makes this the perfect side dish anytime of the year. Teenagers and adults alike enjoyed this unique taste."
"1 envelope of ranch dressing is enough ! Delicious !"

"This recipe was excellent. I did not have ranch dressing mix on hand, so I Google'd a recipe for the mix online. Even with substitutions, this recipe was a hit. I halved the recipe and used 2Tblsp. of butter and brown sugar instead of a quarter cup. My family thought it was excellent and that the carrots were very tender. Thank you for sharing! :)"
