Chocolate graham gold fish, chocolate chip Kellogs Fiber Plus bars, and a simple square of dark chocolate melted in a glass of warm milk are all good for my chocolate cravings.

I love the chocolatey taste of Stauffer's brand Chocolate Animal Crackers. I find them at my local Aldi store. It definitely satisfies my chocolate fix and it's low-fat and lower calorie than a candy bar or other item.

i use a chocolatey protein bar to add a healthier touch to chocolate. not the best, but if you find one you like, it could help!

I use raw cacao and would add some green stevia powder to it. I put it in my smoothies all the time.

Pure un-sweetened cocoa is 12 calories per tablespoon.
packed with good things, its a wonderful way to get a chocolate taste with no guilt.

I had it stirred into cottage cheese with frozen berries for lunch, it was SO good, and tomorrow I'm having it in my porridge (oatmeal) with peanut butter... its like a hot Snickers pudding, but totally guilt free.

I'd have to join in and say a small(er) amount of a good, dark chocolate is the way to go, as there's no substitute for chocolate, really. The darker it is, the less you'll eat, likely. It's the cheapest milk chocolate candies I can swallow with abandon.

But if it's a replacement for cooking, not eating straight (and this wasn't your question), then the answer is carob, and see also:

If you want a nutritious chocolate 'fix' *and* can control yourself, you could do worse than Silk's chocolate soy milk ... smooth, rich, nutritious. It's a nice treat.

It's not a substitute, but i find if I eat a square of dark chocolate it helps. Or, melt a few dark chocolate squares and dip fruit into a little of it.
Besides just eating a smaller amount of it, there's nothing that's satisfying enough for me to call it a substitute.

I love chocolate. That I eat some everyday. What can I use as a substitute and not crave chocolate?
