CARROT RECIPE - CARROT SWEET / TOFFEE

            CARROT SWEET     

 Carrot is a versatile vegetable that can be used as a savory addition as well as for delicious sweet desserts. The high level of sugar content in carrots makes them a unique and healthy alternative to other sweeteners.
                 I always prefer Carrots for dessert due to its versatile nature, its tempting color and moreover, it's healthy.  Carrot halwa, Carrot pudding, Carrot kheer, Carrot cake, Carrot kesari,  Carrot laddoo, Carrot muffins, etc.. are some of the common desserts with carrot.
               Today I am sharing here an easy carrot toffee, that looks like a baby carrot and of course yet another wonderful outstanding dessert. So let's see how to make this yummy sweet using carrots. ENJOY!!!!
