To learn how to decorate cake pops, you will need the following INGREDIENTS:

Shredded coconut
Mini chocolate chips
Sesame seeds
Various nuts (almond, walnuts, pecans, peanuts et.c.)

Step 2:
Then, toast 1 cup each of peanuts, almonds and sesame seeds separately. Roughly chop the almonds and peanuts.
I placed everything (mini chocolate chips, colorful sprinkles, crushed almonds, crushed peanuts, colored sugar, sesame seeds and shredded coconut) on a single plate but it’s better to put all these ingredients in separate containers. That way, it’s easier to cover cake pops in them.
