I love this! Brown sugar is ridiculously expensive. This is such a great and inexpensive way to make and it's fresh every time! I found that using two of my high heat heavy duty cooking spatulas and pressing the sugar and molasses together did a fine job and I was done in less than 5 min. It did a but of muscle/elbow grease... but it worked out great! Thanks so much

I am really pleased with the results. I think how dark it is depends on the type of Molasses. I got a med/dark sugar mix using 1 c sugar to 1 tbsp molasses, then added a bit more sugar, mixing it gently with a small whisk. My mixer would send it every everywhere as one reviewer mentioned. Brown sugar is crossed off my grocery list now.

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!
