Hi and welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Barbara and will be happy to help you and Cassie today.

It depends upon how much chocolate and Cassie's weight to know if she ingested a toxic dose of chocolate. How much does Cassie weigh and what type and how much chocolate did she eat?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She weighs 15 pounds and she ate a Hershey milk chocolate candy bar 1.55 oz.

Thanks. I need to check on that and will be right back. . .

Cassie should be just fine. She may have some diarrhea and vomiting, but no cardiac or neurologic toxicity.
