Does anyone have a good recipe for candied carrots?

My son is requesting them for his birthday dinner and I've yet to find a recipe that I really like.

Any suggestions?

I think there is only one way to make them?

here is the recipe I use

500 g slender or baby carrots, peeled and trimmed {1 pound}
1 tablespoon mild olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

one: heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet. 
two: add the carrots and bake, shaking the pan often to ensure they cook evenly. The carrots should be somewhat softened but not yet completely tender, this should take about five minutes.
three: drizzle the carrots with honey and toss to coat. Continue to cook until just tender, this could take up to two minutes or a bit more, depending on the size.
four: season the carrots and sprinke in the sesame seeds. 
five: transfer the pretty carrots to a plate and enjoy!

Sesame seeds is a great addition. I'd never have thought to use them. Thanks!
