Don't walk away from chocolate... When flavor is this good, portions can be small and still satisfy.
Break 1 chocolate graham cracker rectangle in half. Spread 1/2 tablespoon chocolate hazelnut spread (such as Nutella) onto one half. Top with remaining half.
Stir 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper into 1 fat-free chocolate pudding cup. Top with 1 tablespoon fat-free whipped topping.
Drizzle 1 mini brownie bite with 1/2 teaspoon caramel syrup. Top with 1 toasted pecan half.

Dip 2 large marshmallows into 1 tablespoon melted semisweet chocolate chips. Roll in 2 teaspoons cinnamon graham cracker crumbs.
