Note: The recipe doesn’t explain what to roll these in, but black sesame seeds, powdered Oreos, crushed pistachios, toasted coconut, and colored sugars will give you the same effect as the pictured eggs. You may need brush the eggs with a little extra marshmallow to get coatings to stick effectively, too.
