“Making your own brown sugar is so simple and easy and it tastes exactly like store-bought! You'll never run out of brown sugar if you keep two simple ingredients on hand: white granulated sugar and molasses. Recipe ingredients are for light brown sugar. For dark brown sugar, simply use 2 tablespoons of molasses for every 1 cup of white sugar. To keep it moist, put a slice of bread into the storage container.”

I found myself unexpectedly running low on brown sugar after a failed BBQ sauce attempt and, thankfully, remembered I'd just saved this *recipe*. I'd give this 5 stars, however, the preparation method did NOT work for me, it merely made our counters/floors a sticky mess and made me cranky. After the THIRD bowl change/hand mixer attempt, I decided to use my mini food processor and that was CLUTCH. It made short work of this, w/no mess, and gave me the results I desired. I'm still not sure what differentiates between light/dark? I made as written and the result was LIGHT, so if you're looking for dark, perhaps start w/doubling the molasses and go from there. THANKS for the save, JillH!
