Help! How do you make brown sugar?

Does anyone know the ratios for making brown sugar?  I knew I'd forget something at the store yesterday!  Thanks much.

From the net


1 cup granulated sugar, add 2 Tablespoons molasses. Stir together until evenly mixed with a fork. After trying it once, vary it by using 1 Tablespoon molasses, using the dark molasses or the light molasses. We prefer 1 cup sugar to 1 Tablespoon light molasses, but I have made all the other variations. I make a double batch every time.

Thanks for the reply.  I needed it asap so I just threw 2 cups of sugar into my Cuisinart and kept adding molasses until it looked the right color.  My DH was utterly amazed that I could "create" brown sugar......next, a cure for the common cold!  LOL!
