Sounds like you stick to a good and sensible enough diet during the day, and by evening you feel you deserve to reward yourself. And chocolate does contain some harmless chemicals that help us to feel good. I would think that so long as you limit the amount you have in the evening --- a reasonable portion of chocolate as a reward for eating modestly all day, would not damage the purpose of your diet, and not be unhealthy. Maybe you also find your day rather unrewarding, adding to that sense of really deserving something special as an evening reward
