I decided to temporarily set aside my Funfetti obsession, and play with another one of my favorite flavors: orange creme. I combined orange cake mix with powdered sugar, and dusted it over vanilla candy-coated Chex. It's super sweet, but not cloyingly so, and has a refreshing punch of citrus, which partners deliciously with the powdered sugar. It tastes just like a Creamsicle, minus the brain freeze.
