27 Sensible Ways to Satisfy Your Chocolate Cravings

Better-for-You Chocolate Treats for 60-160 Calories

The DIY chocolate croissant idea sounds awesome! A little bit of luxury and not much guilt. The only problem with it is that you can't make just one. The package contains 8 crescents -- if I baked up all of them, I'd be tempted to eat several at once. I suppose one could bake them all and freeze the other 7, but I'm not sure how many would actually get into the freezer...

I like to slice bananas, freeze them for about 15 min so they are firm and then cover them in melted chocolate and refreeze. DIY as opposed to buying it prepackaged and getting a lot more additives and paying more.

I generally have other family members consume things before I get to them !! Which is some times an aggravation. Also I will never understand the attraction of pretzels dipped in chocolate.

Would have been nice to include the carb and protein counts for these treats, not just the total calories.

Let's not forget 3-2-1 cake. Search in the spark recipes to find it. It's easy, quick and customizable!

My take on this , If I am going to eat chocolate it should be good. I get Lindts and also Ghirardelli the dark ones with 70 % + cocoa. Yummy. ( I do not eat more than one square
at the time)

How about a banana with homemade choco-almond butter (made with almonds and bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate)!

My new fav chocolate are "Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai and Blueberry Flavors" or "Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate" 1/4 cup (40 grams) = 170 or 180 calories. A little higher than listed here, but oooohhh so good!

I put a half cup of chocolate soy milk in my coffee every morning. It's a nice treat, adds some protein and calcium to my diet, and delicious!

need to include Ghirardelli's Intense Dark 72%cacao squares. About 50 calories per square and REALLY satisfies the cravings - plus I like dark better than I do milk anyway!!

I'm really loving the line of Fiber One 90 calorie brownies (and other sweets, like lemon bars) - I get my chocolate/sweet fix and a bunch of fiber, too! *thumbs up*
