Breastfeeding and Chocolate

Has anyone ever consumed chocolate and experienced an irritable baby? I am trying to narrow down what is happening with my little one. She is about to be 6 months and still breastfeeding. I am not a chocolate person, but decided one night to eat have a package of oreos. Not too late after, she developed a rash on her bottom. She was also very irritated the next couple of days. I am wondering if this could be related to the chocolate?

I'm a huge chocolate eater. My 9 month old is also bf. I ate chocolate throughout pregnancy and since. I probably eat it almost every day. I have never had any issues. Could be the chocolate since you eat it so rarely. I would guess its probably an additive or perseverative instead. GL!
