The Mysterious 'Chocolate' Incident

My four year old daughter Lily is very proud she is potty trained (about time right?) but still needs assistance when it comes to wiping.  About a month ago I was busy and asked my husband to help her wipe when she was done using the restroom.  Awhile later he assured me he had.  Not long after I went into the carpeted bathroom where my daughter was trying to cram her foot into the sink while still balancing on her stepping stool.
“Lily what are you doing?” I ask.
“Trying to get the chocolate off my foot, see mommy, there’s chocolate.”
“What?” I move closer.  Sure enough there was dark brown ‘chocolate’ on her foot.  Glancing down, I discover more ‘chocolate’ smeared on the carpet. 
“Honey, you wiped Lily right?” I holler, nervously.
“Yeah,” he calls back.
“So what is this everywhere?”
He immediately appears in the door way.  “I don’t know.”
My daughter Lily assures us. “It’s chocolate.”
I kneel down to investigate further.  Upon smelling, I know for sure it is NOT chocolate.  I give my husband the ‘look’.
“What?  I wiped her!” he defends himself.   “I don’t know how it happened.”
Lily repeats, “Its chocolate daddy.”
Needless to say a few minutes later daddy is on hands and knees with carpet cleaner and rag, scrubbing. 
I clean and dry Lily’s hands and feet and began steering her out of the bathroom. 
Noticing her daddy, Lily exclaims happily, “Look, Daddy has chocolate on his feet too!”
