If you restrict yourself from all sweet treats your body will crave them more, if you give in and you start on the chocolates it can be lethal. If however you have a secret weapon in the fridge those sugar pangs won't worry you. I find most of the "healthy treats" I have made are incredibly rich, meaning that I never need very much before I feel satisfied. These delicious DIY bounty bars are no exception. Plus as with most of the things I make, these took minutes and were very easy.
