The basic ingredients of dark chocolate are cocoa, sugar, soy lecithin, and various flavors. These ingredients can be replaced with others for a much healthier version with fewer calories. Thus, cocoa can be replaced with carob or you can use soy milk, coconut oil and Green Sugar (sugar made of stevia rebaudiana powder).
