In a large bowl, mix together the butter, vanilla and cream cheese. Stir in icing sugar to make a workable dough. For best results, use your hands for mixing.
Divide the dough into four parts. Leave one of the parts plain. To the second part, mix in peanut butter. Mix coconut into the third part, and cocoa powder into the last part. Roll each type of dough into egg shapes, and place on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray. Refrigerate until hard, at least an hour.
Melt chocolate pieces in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until smooth. If the chocolate seems too thick for coating, stir in some of the oil until it thins. Dip the chilled eggs in chocolate, and return to the greaseproof paper lined tray to set. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour to harden.
