This got me thinking. If my mother-in-law who loves to be in the kitchen doesn't know this simple trick maybe there are others out there who also don't know. So here it is, straight from my kitchen to yours: Do It Yourself Brown Sugar!
2 C. granulated sugar
1-3 Tbsp molasses
Seriously! That's all you need!
1. Put your sugar in a bowl.
2. Add molasses (1 tbsp to start)
3. Using a fork (or for a much easier method use a mixer!) mix together your sugar and molasses until completely blended.
4. Continue adding molasses 1 Tbsp. at a time until you reach your desired color (light or dark brown sugar).
And that's it. Your done! My brown sugar is pretty light but I used regular molasses. I had to add 3 Tbsp of molasses to get this color. If you use blackstrap molasses your brown sugar will be darker and you won't need to use as much.
Now when you make that special someone their Valentine's Day treat today you can add a little extra love by using your homemade brown sugar!
Happy Valentine's Day!
