I repeat: Which nuts go well with raspberry and white chocolate?

I was just wondering about typical combinations that are known to go well with raspberry and white chocolate. Like regular chocolate and hazelnuts. Or tomato and basil. I don't believe that these known combinations are opinion-based.

More context: I've made a simple version of raspberry cake pops and I want to sprinkle some kind of a nut on top.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    We don't have a lot to go on here. For what applications? What have you tried already? What hasn't worked in your previous efforts? Are there specific restrictions (such as allergies) on what type of nuts you can have? Questions that only ask for opinions don't tend to last very long here. – logophobe Aug 8 '14 at 14:28

  • Sorry, but pairing questions are off topic. They are a cultural preference and so fall squarely into the "opinion based" closing reason. – rumtscho Aug 10 '14 at 12:54
  • @rumtscho As you know I'm still learning. Would the question work if it was worded as "In dessert recipes, which nuts are most often used with raspberries and white chocolate?" Also, the first line of the content (I repeat ...) could be removed. I wanted to ask and use this to learn rather than just try to edit. – Cindy Aug 10 '14 at 20:35
  • @CindyAskew I understand that our rules can seem strange at the beginning, because we do close many questions which are interesting for cooks. What we want to do here is focus on very efficient sharing of reliable information. And there are some types of question where our voting system produces unwanted results. For example flavor pairings: what "goes well with X" is a matter of personal experience, people tend to like combinations they have encountered frequently. It might seem objective if everybody around you has the same preferences (because the combination is frequent in your home... – rumtscho Aug 10 '14 at 21:37

As far as flavor profiles go, almonds and macadamia nuts work well. But my all time favorite is hazelnuts (filberts).

I have heard of recipes that call for pecans. While I absolutely love pecans I haven't tried them with raspberry and white chocolate. I would like to say the flavor combination should be good but I can't quite wrap my head around it.

    +1, macadamia or almond is very typical. I can't say that I've seen pecans with white chocolate and berries though. – Air Aug 8 '14 at 17:13

    +1, macadamia is what instantly sprung to my mind as well. – MegaMark Aug 8 '14 at 18:27
