Baked Sugared Carrots

We are inspired by a new kids’ cookbook to bake carrots in foil packages. We use a toaster oven instead of a regular oven for this small side dish, but this interesting way of preparing carrots would work nicely if the oven was already on for making dinner.

We start by preheating our toaster oven to 400° F. We take 2 large pieces of aluminum foil, about 12 inch squares, and put down on our counter. On one of the squares, we put the carrots, oil, and brown sugar, and mix with clean hands. We top with the ice cube and cover with the other piece of foil. Carefully, we fold up the edges to make a sealed package. We want it small enough to fit in the toaster oven.

The foil package is placed in the toaster oven and we bake for 40 minutes. The carrots should be tender. We open the foil package, being careful to avoid the steam, and serve the carrots in a bowl.
