Homemade Brown Sugar

Homemade Brown Sugar - never run out of brown sugar again! Make your own with only 2 simple ingredients! I ran out of brown sugar while making cookies - used this recipe and it was perfect!

I was making cookies and went to grab the brown sugar and realized I was out. I had some molasses on hand, so I decided to make my own! It couldn't be simpler. It only requires two ingredients!

This made light brown sugar. Just add more molasses if you want a darker brown sugar. I mixed this together by hand and it took less than 5 minutes. If you don't want to mix it up by hand,  you could also use a mixer. I had a half made batch of cookies in my mixer, or I probably would have used the mixer. I plan on making a big batch and not buying it in the store anymore.

  3. Huh! I thought the liquid in the molasses would've gummed up the sugar. Thanks!

  4. I've been doing this for a while and I love it! You get much better flavor and it's so easy to do. I use a fork to get the worst of it taken care of then I'll transfer it to a ziploc bag, zip it up and finish mixing it by hand. It's a great stress reliever! I usually do a double batch, keep it in a ziploc bag and a storage container with a good seal. We're in a really dry environment so it dries out super fast. Also, I only use 1 Tbsp of molasses to 1 cup of sugar and it turns out just as good.
