Delicious and Nutritious Candied Carrots with Trumoo Milk

This post brought to you by TruMoo. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have seen the Halloween Treat Challenge of Trumoo on Facebook and thought, it's a fun thing to  experiment  in my kitchen.  I went to the store yesterday and  looked for the Trumoo Orange Scream milk but could not find one so I just got the Trumoo Chocolate flavored one.  I decided to make  some candied carrots since I have many carrots that I harvested from my garden.  I have never done this before but I had a feeling that it is going to be good so I went for it.  Here's  the  recipe  that I came up with:

You will need:
  • 3 medium size carrots
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 glass of trumoo chocolate milk
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • Orange zest 

  • Peel the carrots and slice them up.  You can make some heart-shape ones out of the small part of the carrots but that's optional

  • I decided to incorporate an orange zest  since I did not  find the orange scream flavored milk.  

  • In a medium size pan, melt the butter.
  • Add the marshmallows and let it  melt.
  • Mix the  cornstarch to the glass of chocolate milk.  Then add the  mixture to the melted butter and marshmallows.
  • Add the orange zest,  honey, and cream cheese

  • Stir it until the  mixture is   thick then add the carrots.
  • Cook it in a medium high heat for 25 minutes.

  • Let it cool  a little bit before  stacking them up and putting a lunch pick on it.
  • The sauce tasted so good so I didn't want to throw it out.  I added  food coloring to eat and  put it in a ziploc bag.  Cut the  corner  of the ziploc bag and  squirt the sauce around the  candied carrot.  

I can't wait til my kids comes home from school.  They love trying new treats like this.  I love it  when company challenges  Moms like me because it  gets the creativity out of you.  You can try my recipe and see if you like it.  Preparation is very easy and it tastes so good.  It's delicious and nutritious at the same time.  You can visit their website for more delicious TruMoo Halloween recipes or  check them out through Pinterest for more fun Halloween treat ideas  using Trumoo Orange Scream and chocolate flavored milk.
