Glazed Ranch Carrots

We love these tasty ranch carrots. The side dish relies on packages of baby carrots and ranch dressing mix, so there's no time-consuming prep. —Marion Reed, Omak, Washington

    Yummm, and so freezable to do ahead if needed. And yes half the glaze.

    Tasted really good and a little different from most glazed carrots with all the Ranch seasonings. I did cut the glaze ingredients in half (1/4 c. butter and brown sugar and only one packet of Ranch) as others suggested and it coated all the carrots very well. My husband really enjoyed them and asked that I make them again.

    Ahhh!!! I'm stuffing my mouth as I type (happy Easter, everyone! I gave up BUTTER for Lent. ) It's got a LOT of glaze, but so tasty!

    These were very tasty. I read the reviews before making these and made half the amount of glaze as suggested by many. It was the perfect amount of glaze.

    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!

    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.
