He's obviously not getting something he needs. Whether it be attention (from you or someone else he cares about.) Are you very strict about candy? You might also be able to swing around his desire to have chocolate to be a reward for good behavior (instead of bad behavior like he is now).
Stealing chocolate doesn't sound like a life altering problem, so long as you deal with it. But if he's doing more stuff (outrageous behavior) then you should probably take him to see a counselor. Or have the school counselor talk to him, and see if you can figure out what's going on.
