The high fat of a chocolate bar would be less than ideal as part of a PWO meal. Also, even though you're bulking and chocolate will give you a lot of calories, the combination of fat and high-GI carbs increases your chances of gaining fat. If chocolate protein powders or cocoa as part of a PWO shake don't satisfy your cravings, I guess you could throw some fat-free chocolate syrup in there. There are better ways to get your high-GI PWO carbs (i.e. dextrose), but the sucrose would be nearly as effective while helping you get your chocolate fix.

I've a nasty sweet tooth and although I eat really clean all week I do allow myself the mother of all cheat days. On a friday night, which is a weights day I eat a full packet of McVities Chocolate HobNobs.

So on a Friday I have my usual 3500 calories from good stuff but then I throw in the biscuits. The full packet adds upto around 3,500 cals - please don't flame me to death it's my one and only vice in life.
