Whip these whimsical treats up in no time, they require no baking and are perfect for a spring centerpiece or a fun Easter treat.
They would look just as lovely in pink, yellow or plain white chocolate as they do in this pastel blue hue.
The finished eggs can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Step 1: Make the oreo truffles and shape the eggs
Line a tray with parchment paper. Take around 3 teaspoons of the cake pop mixture and roll it between your palms to make a smooth ball, then using your fingers and palms turn the ball into an egg/oval shape. I find that shaping the mixture into the ball first makes it easier to get a smooth finish.
Place the egg shaped truffles on the tray in fridge to chill until firm
