Hollywood actress DENISE RICHARDS starts her days on an extremely sweet note - by munching on chocolate treats M+Ms.

The Scary Movie 3 beauty, who recently shed weight within weeks of giving birth to her second daughter LOLA, insists chocolate is a regular part of her morning ritual.

She says, "I eat M+Ms almost every morning with my coffee. When you're working 16 hours straight, three meals a day doesn't cut it."
