  3. Mix in flour and salt and continue to mix until just incorporated.
  4. Use a small cookie scoop to portion out balls of dough and use your hands to roll them into an egg.
  5. Arrange eggs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  6. Melt the chocolate wafers (or chocolate chips, a good quality chocolate bar, etc.) and remove the eggs from the freezer.
  7. Drop each egg into the melted chocolate with your hands and use a spoon to carefully coat and lift them out, placing back onto the parchment paper.
