Heat until melted, stirring every 30 seconds to prevent burning
(Tip: If the candy melt is too thick, mix in a 0.5 tsp of vegetable oil for a runny consistency)
Pour the melted mixture into a tall glass
(Tip: This makes it easier to dip and achieve an even coating)
Remove two cakesicles from the freezer and mould
