I don't buy things like say; a tub of ice cream. If I want an ice cream, we (myself and family) make a special trip out of it. We take a nice walk somewhere and get ice cream from a parlour after. So it's a special treat.
I rarely buy chocolate bars but if I've been in the mood to have a Reese's peanut butter cup I don't see an issue with planning a walk to the grocery store to buy one and fitting it in my cal range.
I wouldn't say I really *crave* these things any more... it's just sometimes I'm in the mood for a special treat not in my regular diet.
I don't keep cookies, cakes, pies, candy, chocolate, chips etc. in my house. I don't buy them in my regular grocery trips. If I had these things regularly, even if it was just a portion at a time, it would quickly snowball into cravings for sweets and lead to me overeating them. If I feel like a treat, then I plan a special trip to get it and like you, just buy a portion size. When I just have them once in awhile it doesn't manifest into cravings.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
