    Hey all,
    Been feeling yuck for the past few days and ALL i've wanted to eat is chocolate but have resisted every urge as not fancying spending 91/2 syns on a bag of maltesers... so was wondering if anyone has any chocolate inspired recipes which I could try out to get me through!

    Thanks in advance xxx

    You could make the chocolate chickpea cake which is on the recipe threads. That is really good.
    Or why not have a chomp or a curly wurly which are much lower in syns?

    My advice is, if you want the chocolate then have it. You get 15 syns a day hun, so what if you use 9.5 on maltesers, you still have 5.5 for other things?

    If you want it, have it - SW is not about depriving yourself, it allows you to have these little treats!

    PS revels are 8.5 and if you put them in the freezer they last so much longer!

    Have real chocolate! As Jay said, you've got syns there to use. SW is not about depriving yourself and sometimes having a substitute just won't cut it.

    Curly wurly, 2 finger kitkat, freddo bars...all good low-syn options.

    Having said that, I did quite enjoy the weetabix cake I made the other day. That was nicely chocolatey.

    I like Milky Bars, although they are too sweet for some people. The ones I have, about 21g, are approx. 5 syns. I keep a pack in the freezer and just get one out when I need a fix. I avoided chocolate for the first 4 months on SW and I finally decided that it would be best to have some occasionally.
