Let's Make It
Use sharp knife to cut 1/2-inch-thick slice off top of each chocolate egg. Discard removed slice or reserve for snacking.
Sprinkle gelatine over water in small microwaveable bowl; let stand 5 min. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec.; stir until gelatine is completely dissolved.
Melt 2 oz. white chocolate as directed on package.
Beat cream cheese, vanilla and melted white chocolate in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add gelatine; mix well. Spoon into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe cream cheese mixture evenly into chocolate eggs. (Eggs will be full.) Refrigerate 45 min. to 1 hour or until filling is set.
Melt remaining white chocolate; cool completely. Stir in enough food coloring until chocolate resembles color of egg yolk. Spoon into separate resealable plastic bag.
Use tip of small knife to carefully remove about 1/4 tsp. cream cheese filling from center of each egg; discard removed filling. Cut small corner off bottom of tinted chocolate-filled bag; use to pipe chocolate into centers of eggs. Use moistened finger to smooth tops of chocolate centers. Refrigerate 30 min.
Look for hollow chocolate Easter eggs with other Easter candies in the seasonal candy aisle of your supermarket. Typically they come wrapped in brightly colored foil. If you unable to find them in your supermarket, you can order them online.
