Powdered Brown Sugar?

Airo | Jan 31, 201212:16 AM     18

I've never seen it in stores, but am curious as to whether or not this can be made at home. If it's possible, basically...because of the molasses content.

Anyone have any tips or advice...even pictures? Can't really find that much online about this, either. Scant info here and there, but not very detailed.

Someone suggested, on another site, to dry out the brown sugar in the oven at 250 degrees for 35-40 minutes and then take the dried sugar and blend it for a powdery texture, but I can't help wondering if "drying" it first would make the sugar caramelize.

What would I use powdered brown sugar for? A variety of things, but specifically for making a buttercream icing.
