Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. While it cools, prepare your dry ingredients.
In a medium sized bowl, toss together the flour, salt, and both sugars. Add vanilla extract to butter, stir it around, and then add your slightly cooled butter to your dry ingredients. Stir with a spatula until completely combined. Mixture will be crumbly, but add your mini-chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the crushed mini eggs and stir well until distributed evenly. Drizzle water over dough and mix until everything is well combined. You may need to use your hands. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes.
Place remaining 1/2 cup of crushed mini eggs in a shallow bowl. When dough has been chilled, form dough into balls about 1 Tablespoon (1 ounce) or ½ Tablespoon (1/2 ounce) in size (or desired size) and roll in crushed mini eggs. Place coated dough balls on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate dough balls at least 10 minutes. Serve cold or at room temperature. Store bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
*Flour should be heat-treated: place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds on high, stirring after each 15 second interval.
