Melt it with white chocolate with candy melts in the small bowl over simmering water. You don’t have to melt all at once . You need just a small amount right now . and Make sure it with no water can get in the bowl or you will the end up with ones ugly mess. Once the chocolate is melted ,take it from the heat and set aside .

Form small triangles with the cake pop dough . Dip the cake pop sticks into the melted chocolate and stick them into the triangles on one of the shorter side -be careful not to break the cake pop . Place it on a baking parchment & a baking mat and let cool in the fridge for 1 hour.

While the cake-pops with cooling , chop and nuts in place it in a small-bowl on a small-plate . Melt the remaining chocolate- white and dark . If the chocolate is too thick, add some coconut oil to get it more runny . Take the cakes and pops out of the fridge and dip it into white-chocolate – be careful with not to break them or also let them slip into thechocolate. Place on a cake pop stand and let dry just a bit . The surface should not’be dry , just not drip anymore. Dip it in the chopped nuts so everything will be covered . Place on the stand to let dry completely. As soon as the chocolate is dry and the nuts stick well ,dip one corner of the triangle in the melted dark chocolate. Let dry again .
