How to Make Brown Sugar

How To Make Brown Sugar

The other night my family wanted me to make Chocolate Chip Cookies.  As I started to assemble my ingredients, I realized I was OUT OF BROWN SUGAR! Crud! So I asked the wonderful TCB facebook fans if I could just use more white sugar……..NO!  But I learned from those amazing people on how to make brown sugar!  I ended up making the cookies Friday night and decided to try my luck at making my own brown sugar.

How to Make Brown Sugar


  • 1 Cup White granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Molasses (use 1 1/2 tablespoons for light brown sugar)


  1. I used my magic bullet to mix. I poured in 1/2 cup sugar, added the molasses, then poured in the remaining sugar.
  2. Mixed for about 30 seconds while also shaking the magic bullet.

BEAUTIFUL!  So easy!  I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to store bought brown sugar.  I think it tasted better than store bought.  It’s always nice to know you can find easy ways to substitute ingredients in a pinch.

I love the flavor…….it seems a bit bolder and being able to whip up a batch whenever needed is a plus.

    Thanks for sharing! It makes so much more sense to make exactly what you need, rather than keeping a box in the cupboard that always seems to get rock hard before I use it. Yeah, that’s how often I get a chance to bake. ;)
