Let's say the toffees are A, B, and C.

The egg must have at least one toffee of each sort, so each egg looks like

A B C X X X

where X is one of A, B, or C.

There are 3 choices for each X, and 3 X's, so that's 3*3*3 ways to do it. There's your answer.

Sorry, I started eating the eggs before I finished counting them. It lost track after 8, so it's at least that many.
