4 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal
4 1/2 cups Corn Chex cereal

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large mixing bowl, combine both kinds of cereal and set aside.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a large baking sheet and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix both sugars and set aside.
Heat brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil for one minute, stirring constantly; remove from heat.
Pour over cereal mix and stir until cereal is coated.
