is it safe to eat an uncooked egg?
There’s always a concern when using uncooked store-bought eggs. Fresh eggs from local sources are less of a risk. But I believe that when you add the egg to the melted margarine and chocolate, the heat from it has at least some of a mitigating factor. I ate these all throughout my childhood and into my 20’s and 30’s, and no one ever got sick from the uncooked egg. In the end, I would say maybe consider your sources. Store-bought eggs from factory farms will always pose more of a risk than those from local, free range sources. But I believe the risk here is minimal, since the egg is partially heated by the melted butter and chocolate. As with most things, though, there cannot be 100% assurances.
