    Default How do you satisfy a chocolate craving....cheaply???

    ....and by cheap, I mean without using too many points!

    I have been satifsying mine lately with 3 Hershey's Dark Chocolate Kisses....3 of them for 2 points. They are so rich! And dark chocolate is good for your heart too!

    I put chocolate syrup in my milk ... 1 Point per tablespoon. Usually 1 Tbsp. in a glass of milk is enough. Helps me get my dairy in too!

    cocoavia bars - 2 points
    NSA/FF pudding cups - 1 point
    Frozen ice cream treats - various types 1 - 3 points
    NSA/FF hot cocoa (I will add some Davinci syrups to them) - 0 points
    No Pudge brownies - 2 points I believe (I always look at their NI to be sure)

    Blue bell mini ice cream sandwiches. They are the greatest and are two points. Hopefully, you are in an area that sells Blue Bell..its the greatest!

    I like the 100 cal packs of the mini-fudge-striped cookies for 2 points, and also Hershey's & Reeses makes 100 cal packs called "snacksters" which satisfy chocolate or pb cravings! Sooo good (I got mine at Target, that's the only place I can find snacksters)

    I tried the WW chocolate muffins today because they were on sale at Walmart. They are actually really good. And a good size--not teeny like the cakes. 3 points and worth it, IMO.

    Swiss Miss Chocolate Sensations hot chocolate. Be sure to follow directions and only use 3/4 C hot water. It's like a liquid chocolate bar and only 3 points. To jazz it up a little (not that it isn't great as is) I put in a pinch of cayenne pepper (homage to the movie Chocolat).

    I found a new product--Keebler chocolate fudge pops. They are like the fruit pops you get for the kids--long plastic tubes filled with liquid that you freeze. They are just like a fudge pop on a stick, but in a plastic tube and they are only 1 POINT EACH!!!!! Cool, creamy and very fudgy!! I live in Iowa, but I would guess since they are a Keebler product, you'll soon find them everywhere.

    I really like making SF Jello Pudding, not the instant, but the cook type. I use no fat milk. It is becoming difficult for me to find in a small box.

    The points are primarily from the milk -- it counts as a serving of milk. It is more filling than the milk alone, for me, it is more like drinking 2 cups of milk. I've been losing for about 4 months -- this is only 1 of two chocolate food items I've had. I highly recommended it.

    I've heard rave reviews about the Cocoavia bars, and if you like dark chocolate, they are made with it. I'm pretty sure they are 2 points. I'm not much of a chocolate person, just during TOM sometimes, but a cup of hot chocolate does it for me.

    I like ripe strawberries dipped in semisweet chocolate (melted Ghiradelli chips). I'm not sure of the points cuz I don't make them often, but it's not much.

    I also like the chocolate pudding that is 1 pt and found in the refrigerated section (sf or ff or both, whatever). It counts as almost 1 milk serving.

    The chocolate and Fiber One cookies (haystacks) work for me, too.

    Another really good yummy thing for 2 pts. They now make Nestle "stix" they have cruch kind and a butterfinger kind. I love the Butterfinger ones, they are a stick, and it's filled with peanut butter, and, it's just YUMMY! Be careful though....I'm always tempted for more...

    I found these at the front of the grocery store on a temporary display, but they wouldn't be in the freezer section. Ask at the store where they stock the kids freezer pops, they may be with them since that's what they look like. Tell them they are in a long plastic tube that you freeze yourself.

    I like Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Squares - they are about 1/5-2 points each. They are very rich and satisfying for an after dinner snack. And good for you too! (in moderation of course).
