Thankfully there's not enough chocolate in that Twix bar to intoxicate an 11 lb dog. It takes ~11 ounces of solid milk chocolate to intoxicate Winnie with the theobromine in the chocolate which can cause vomiting, agitation, and tremors if ingested in sufficient amount. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Winnie will remain safe. There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner.
