Help! I'm missing Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

I don't have any brown sugar in the house and
I really want to make some. What's my best bet instead of brown sugar? I looked for a substitute but I don't have molasses either. I'm making these:
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
Should I just wait till I can get some brown sugar or is there a way to make them?

Do you have any molasses?

If so, use all white sugar and add a couple of tablespoons of molasses.

Just like Andy says mix in enough molasses to make either light or dark brown sugar.

Almost doesn't have any molasses guys. Hey Almost, just use straight white sugar, no biggie. They won't taste exactly the same, but they will still be great.

DUH! Sorry, Almost... I missed that.

The white sugar will make the cookies a little crispier.
