Mix all ingredients in bowl with wooden spoon until ball forms. 
Place ball  on pan lined with parchment paper then place saran wrap over the top.
Roll dough with rolling pin until dough is like thin like a cracker.
Remove top piece of wax paper and discard.

1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup powdered erythritol* and 1 tsp stevia glycerite (or 1 cup xylitol)

In a microwave-safe bowl or heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil, stir until smooth. Dip eggs until coated; place on waxed paper to harden.

For more decorative eggs, place about 1/4 cup melted chocolate in a small plastic bag. Cut a hole in the corner of the bag; pipe chocolate over tops of eggs. Store in the refrigerator. Makes 16 eggs.
