Chocolate isn't countable in french or in english. The original sentence should be "I eat chocolate." and the translation should be "je mange du chocolat.".

Actually sometimes one does say "I eat a chocolate" referring to a piece of chocolate.

'Un' means 'a' in english. 'Du' doesn't reallly have a translation in this sentence, however 'du' can also mean: I eat SOME chocolate.
