mistakes?

Hi i have started using duolingo to help me learn french, i am a little concerned as in the eating section i was asked to put the french for "she has chocolate" it says its incorrect unless i put "du" also for "chocolate" it will only say it is correct if i put "du chocolat" i thought "du" was masculine for some?

La fille a du chocolat et de la crème glacée.

Le garçon a du chocolat et de la crème glacée.

Chocolat is masculine / crème glacée is feminine

You are right, "du" is masculine for some. In French, you have to use articles a lot more than you do in English. The correct translation of "She has chocolate" is "Elle a du chocolat". "Elle a chocolat" is not correct French - it would sound wrong to a French person.
