I have made the Candied Carrots recipe from Allrecipes a couple of times now. Both DH and I are big fans of it. It's sweet but not overpowering.
1 pound carrots, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 tablespoons butter, diced
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
Dash of cayenne
1. Place carrots in a pot of salted water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to a high simmer and cook about 20 to 30 minutes. Do not cook the carrots to a mushy stage!
2. Drain the carrots, reduce the heat to its lowest possible setting and return the carrots to the pan. Stir in butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until sugar is bubbly. Serve hot!
Addendum: The sauce is a little thin- I think next time I'm going to try to add a thickener and see how that works out.
