Can you make dark brown sugar from light brown sugar?

I changed recipes at the last minute and only now realized I need dark brown sugar instead of light. I have molasses. Is there a way to make this work and still come out with nearly the same flavor profile?

Go ahead and use the light brown sugar. It's not going to make a dramatic difference in the outcome. But if you're interested in learning how to make dark brown sugar from white sugar, here's a good link http://recipes.howstuffworks...
