What is the best product to use to fill voids in the pink Xps foam from Home Depot?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Depending on what you are doing Apoxie Sculpt might work for you.

I use the foamboard adhesive PL 300 to fill holes. I drill a bigger, round hole and fill it with a foam dowel (easy to make on the drill press). Only need glue in the bottom of the hole and any paint will hide the seams. Plus it sands like it is all one piece. The problem with epoxy type products is that they get hard and sanding is difficult. Spray foam works pretty good and you can build it up in layers but I hate to start a can just for a minor use and end up throwing it away if I don't use it all before it hardens...
