40 day challenge w/out chocolate!

I am doing a 40 day challenge for a religion class at school and one thing that I am giving up chocolate. It is horrible and was wondering if anyone had any recipes for non-chocolate things to take my mind off that is beyond the usual.

    Caramel!

    There's a great caramel dipping sauce for fruit that you can buy from the store. I also use it to dip pretzels. It's really good!

    Made these last len when I gave up chocolate. They're more addictive than chocolate brownies (And I do love chocolate brownies)
    The recipe is a mixture of a couple of recipes that I found on allrecipes.com..

    Butterscotch brownies
    Ingredients:
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    2 cups brown sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
    2 tsp vanilla essence
    2 eggs

    Method:
    Preheat oven to 350degrees (175celcius)
    Mix the sugar and butter, add the eggs and vanilla essence, stir well. Add the flour and salt and mix until well blended. The mixture will be thick and not-pourable so spread in a greased 8x8 inch baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until the brownies start to pull away from the edge of the pan.

    Delicious, and very chewy. It always amazes me that I can get 2 cups of sugar into an 8x8 pan!
    Wavy, but hair is growing out and is super short right now

    I have been chocolate/caffeine free for two years and one of my sons has been for 4 years because of a heart condition. Goodies we like are:
    Reeses Pieces (no choc. just pnb and candy coating), Reeses White Chocolate Pnb Cups (I put mine in the freezer for a few minutes), white choc. covered pretzels, Zero candy bars, cupcakes, homemade cookies (sugar, pnb, oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodles), ice cream, caramel milkshakes.

    When I was younger I always gave up chocolate for lent and a few of the things that I remember helping me were -

    strawberry milk
    malted milkshakes
    sweet cereals (cap'n crunch was and still is a fav)
    caramel
    a spoonful of honey or brown sugar
    and weirdly - wise potato chips


    I rarely crave chocolate anymore. No idea why. Now my cravings are for really rich things like black olives, avocados, pine nuts, artichokes.
