I know a few of you have said that cacao contains caffeine but this is incorrect, there is no caffeine in cacao powder!
My girls have cacao in bliss balls, muffins and protein shakes. They love it..

I second the carob, you can buy good quality australian carob (it's a ground up seed pod) which has a delicious, chocolately flavour

The trick has been finding the things he likes and giving him lots. Once he was getting his macro-nutrients and actually content/growing properly again, his feeding on the whole got better. I also had to cut down his fibre as he was pooping 5-10 times a day, so on top of the suggestions below he will also eat white bread/pasta/crackers/etc. (I know, I said some of you will cringe at his diet!)
Butter - he loves butter and will eat it off a spoon, on nice fatty crackers like savoy or jatz, on bread. Ditto penut butter and nutella. If she doesn't like butter, try solid coconut oil or perhaps even lard (they all taste very different).
Cream - he will eat lightly whipped cream from a bowl with a spoon.
Peas and Corn - both of these have loads of carbohydrates, plus yes he does get some micro nutrients.
Eggy pancake - he won't eat an omlette, but if I mix an egg, some milk and 1-2 tablespoons of self raising flour and cook it as pancakes in a pan he will scoff them.
He will eat zucchini slice - so here I do sneak in loads of very finely chopped (food processor) or grated veggies and lots of cheese.
Cheese - he goes through phases of liking grated, sliced/cubed and those plastic processed slices. I always have all on hand as he's mostly vegetarian so gets lots of protein from cheese.
Ski Divine Vanilla yoghurt - it is full fat and sweetened with sugar. It tastes so creamy! So many yoghurts are low fat and artifically sweetened. It also doesn't have any fruit lumps.
Crisps and hot chips - say no more, they make anyone put on weight!
Cinnamon donuts - as above x 10000!
Homemade shortbread (I use the recipe on the side of the rice flour box).
Nutri grain and Special K - both higher in protein than most cereal and thankfully he actually likes them both.
It pretty much reads like a list of what to cut out of your diet if you want to lose weight, hey? He does eat raw carrot and cucumber, cooked carrot, risotto with all sorts of veggies in it and quite a few fruit. So he is getting vitamins as well, these things form the 'bulk' of what he eats. As already mentioned though, he really is slowly getting more and more adventurous.
