Can rats eat chocolate?

im really confused about this. ive been reading things where people say a rat cant eat chocolate it will kill it, and others say they can eat it as long as its a small amount and that dark chocolate is good for a rat with a upper respiratory infection
Update: i mean if i ever gave them some human chocolate it would be a bit the size of a smartie, i mean i wouldnt give them a whole bar
