Brown Sugar: To 1 cup granulated sugar, add 2 Tbsp. molasses. Stir together until evenly mixed with a fork. After trying it once, vary it by using 1 Tbsp. molasses, using the dark molasses or the light molasses. I prefer 1 cup sugar to 1 Tbsp molasses. To eliminate speckles of molasses in the sugar, pour in a re-sealable plastic food bag and, continue to knead sugar mixture until color is even. I make a double batch every time.
Powdered Sugar: Add 2 cups granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons cornstarch to a blender jar and blend on high for 2 minutes. Store in an air tight bag.

Could I use splenda for the brown sugar? I am diabetic and I don't believe they have a brown sugar yet. I did hear about using the cornstarch with the splenda to make powdered sugar, just curious. Thanks a lot for the neat ideas.
