Pat the cheese ball into a flat disk, about 1 inches thick.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If the carrots are small and tender, don't peel them - leave them whole. If the carrots are large, peel them if you wish, and slice them lengthwise into halves or quarters.
Spread the carrots in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, coat them with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roast until tender when pierced, about 40-45 minutes. Baking time will depend on the size and thickness of the carrots. (Check small carrots at 30 min.)
In small saucepan, melt the butter then stir in the conserve.
Arrange the roasted carrots on a platter, pour the sauce over them, and sprinkle with the hazelnuts and parsley.
