  • 2 cups White Sugar
  • 2.5 tablespoons Molasses


  • Combine Molasses and Sugar in a large mixing bowl and stir with a spoon until the molasses is completely worked in, breaking up any small chunks as they form. (I used my hands to mix it together thoroughly after stirring it with a spoon for about a minute)
  • If you want your Brown Sugar to be darker, continue to add more molasses.
  • Once you've reached your desired color, you're done! Store in a mason jar or air tight container.
