I like to eat sweets, especially chocolate. However, I'm aware that if you eat pure carbs your blood sugar spikes and then falls.
So my question for the experts is, how long before my run should I eat chocolate, so that I get the maximum benefit out of it? (or at least not hinder my performance)

Yes. The answer depends on the kind of chocolate that you are eating. If it is Hershey's or something like that, you're just eating bullshit and you are going to be a fat-ass muthafvcka.
If you get the 70%+ dark chocolate, you are going to actually benefit from it. I eat some of the free trade, 82% dark chocolate from Whole Foods. I love it.
