You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

It would take ~55 ounces of pure milk chocolate (or ~18 ounces of dark chocolate) to intoxicate him with the theobromine in chocolate which can cause vomiting, agitation, and tremors if ingested in sufficient amount. He ingested 10 ounces of the chocolate and so should remain safe. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but he wasn't intoxicated.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
