1 1/4 cup brown sugar
10 Tbsp butter (melted)
1/3 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 cups Rice Chex
4 cups Corn Chex
Optional: Peanuts/Pecans and chocolate chips

1. In a large microwave safe bowl, mix together brown sugar, butter and corn syrup
2. Microwave mixture for 2 minutes, stir.
3. Add in baking soda (mixture will foam)
4. Mix in Rice Chex and Corn Chex
5. Microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes. (2 minutes will make for a chewy caramel mixture, 3 minutes will get harder and add more crunch)
6. Stir mixture, and pour directly on a clean counter top or cutting board to cool.
7. Break apart, and enjoy!

NOTE: To use the optional items, you can mix in the nuts with the cereal. After it's done, melt the chocolate and drizzle over mixture
