When I'm craving something sweet, like a cookie or candy. I'll eat fresh fruit and a tablespoon or two of nutella. It tastes just like chocolate to me but is healthier. The sweet fruit always hits my sweet tooth and the chocolate taste makes me forget that I'm not actually having candy.
My favorite fruit for this is strawberries. Moderation is important because too much nutella can be high calories.
Freeze dark or any kind of decadent chocolate you like. I find that if I let the bag just sit in my cupboard I am more apt to just grab piece after piece until I've binged big time. Freezing it not only keeps you from overindulging, but letting it melt slowly in your mouth helps you feel satisfied with less.
My favorite chocolate is Lindt's 70-80% cacao dark chocolate.
