Question QUEST for low point chocolate treats

OK, I admit to being a total chocoholic....
So, guys, what are the BEST chocolate low point items you can recommend. I regained a bit of weight recently, some from being on vacation and going overboard, but I recognize my "warning signs" and boredom is setting in with the "same old stuff" and I need some chocolate to "save me" from gaining weight back.
So, packaged, frozen, recipes, anything guys..... just need to be low point and yummy to satisfy the chocoholics of the world!

Hi guys!
I am trying the new "core" program that weight watchers is offering, it's making chocolate more and more hard to have without blowing my points allowance for the entire week.
I did find something "interesting".... not as decadent but still filling and gets that taste!
Make a parfait out of sugar free, fat free chocolate pudding, plain yogurt mixed with a bit of Splenda and vanilla as well as strawberries, pineapple, etc. If you want to use a few points, add come cool whip and a few mini chocolate chips and enjoy!
Not bad at all!
Linda

I'm new to this forum too.

When I saw your question I just had to share this - the best chocolate 'fix' I've found is Nestle Eurpean Chocolate Mousse Mixes. There are 3 or 4 flavors like dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and a couple others. You can find the mix in the baking aisle of the grocery. A whole box makes four servings and is only 1 point per serving! I've checked the points multiple times because I could just never believe that it was right. And it's so easy - all you do is mix in low-fat milk and chill. It's a great dessert especially if you add some light whipped cream and a few strawberries.

This is my first week back at WW after a 3 year 'vacation'. First weigh in tomorrow night.

Personally I find a nice expensive piece (about 1"x1" square) of dark chocolate for 2 points is really satisifying and cures any 'craving' I have for it.

Somethings to try:

FF frozen chocolate fudgsicles bar (microwave 10 sec) or leave out until mooshy.
Mixed with ff cool whip & sprinkle on some nuts if you can spare the points.

2 graham chocolate waffers filled with ff cool whip (freeze them)

Also just a few baking "chocolate chips" to suck on. I find this helps.

Chocolate granola bar cut into 4 pieces then microwaved until soft. Squash down abit - makes for "cookies".

Hope this helps!

Ooooh! You guys are coming up with great ideas! I, of course, could be one to spend my entire flexpoints allowance on chocolate, though I have not!
Now, I did have a "find" today at the grocery store, 2 point chocoloate eclairs!!!! The brand name is Superior and there are five in the clear plastic bakery type package for only $1.99! Items like this are not always all over the country, they might be very local to me - but check in your local grocery for something similar. In this house, we've been big fans of the ww frozen chocolate eclairs for 3 points, but I am really scraping on flexpoints by the end of the day to "afford" 3 points, usually I want two or under point items for my dessert, and I truly save faithfully each day at least 2 points for a dessert, and it usually must be chocolate. On the new core plan, with 35 flex points a week, I dont want any dessert item to go over 2 points, if possible, as I am kind of saving them up for pizza!
At any rate, in the bakery section of my store there are now "mini eclairs" they are about the same shape and size as the ww ones are. I have an extra points finder in my purse, which I whipped out immediately and found these 130 each delites to only be 2 points each, less than the ww brand ones! I checked twice as well, as I wasn't sure that number could really be possible! Of course, I didn't compare the trans fat or that kind of thing in each, but these are truly a point less! So, I bought those, for sure. My daughter, who also goes to ww with me, was thrilled that they are here in the house and only 2 points each!
It will feel like "cheating", but it won't be!!!! Yum! I hope they are good, will let you guys know!
I will be looking for the Euorpean Mouse for sure, sounds excellent!

look at some of the low carb chocolate bars. Z bars have I think 8 grams of fiber and run 3 points for the bar, someone also recomended, although I have not looked for them yet, the carb watcher bars for 2 points. Both can be found at walmart....

Thanks, and keep those low point chocolate items coming!
Any sugar free chocolate products out there like the Jello pudding that is ff and sf????
I took plain ff yogurt and used my food processor and blended strawberries and Splenda, then I made a parfait out of the sf ff chocolate yogurt and the strawberry mixture - wasn't bad!
