How can I get a small amount of chocolate or similar delivered to a friend in the Netherlands this week?

A friend living in Leiden is sad. I would like to cheer her up. Ideally a chocolate bar, chocolate block, or small box of chocolates would arrive at her workplace for her sometime in the next couple of days. I also considered Tim tams, but they are even harder to find. I could put some chocolate in an envelope and mail it to her for around $10-15 (incl postage), and it would arrive... in two-three weeks. I will do this if I can't find another way, but she'll probably be happier before then anyway.
I have tried googling, but all I can find is places with minimum orders of 20 Euro, places with shipping/delivery costs of 15 Euro+, or places that only let you pay from a Dutch bank account, which I do not possess. (Tuckerbox.nl was looking great until we got to that step). I even looked at Etsy, but can't find anything local to the Netherlands, and am a bit suspicious of food ordered from Etsy, anyway.
I would like to pay around 10 Euro or less, but will go up to 15, including delivery, and am happy if the item delivered is a single chocolate bar or box of cookies. It can be delivered via regular post rather than courier.
Does anyone have any websites or other options to recommend? The website does not need to have an English option: I can read Dutch.
