There's 100 calorie Oreo crisps. And sugar free chocolate pudding (bonus - get the dairy benefits). Are these 'healthy' - no. Do they satisfy me and keep me on track - yup!

Satisfy your chocolate craving because dark chocolate is actually good for your heart and colon.

Ghirardelli cocoa 86% Dark Chocolate, not as sweet as the 72% one, but it is so intense that 2 small squares are all you want. The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance and Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Hershey's now makes dark chocolate kisses. You can eat 5 of those for 100 calories.

A cup of hot chocolate may also help your cravings.

I have sugar free jello pudding on hand, skinny cow ice cream and candys... If you are a coffee drinker, you can get sugar free mocha syrup with nf milk for a nice latte.

I like the graham cracker idea. I found some sugar free chocolate chips (I'm diabetic) so I think I'll try those! emoticon

I melt 1tbsp of chocolate chips (80 calories) and then spread on one graham cracker (65 calories). If I want to get crazy, I also grab a few mini marshmallows (25 calories) and melt them on top of the graham cracker, and make a s'more :) Just a warning, melting the marshmallows only takes about 10 seconds tops in the microwave.

OMG this is so delicious, it's a Paleo version of hot chocolate:

The most decadant version is using high-quality semi-sweet baking chocolate, a combination of coconut milk and coconut cream, honey, and vanilla extract. SO so good.

Skinny Cow is great. I also keep 75% dark chocolate in my fridge and allow myself one or two squares.

Un sweetened cocoa is 12 calories a tablespoon.

Mix into cottage cheese or plain yogurt with a little sweetener, so delicious and plenty of protein.
