An exercise in classical conditioning

Inspired by this post, my subsequent chocolate craving, and my need to study for a big test.

I am thinking about doing somewhat of an experiment. I hate to study and am a horrible procrastinator. I like to eat chocolate. Since chocolate induces pleasurable feelings, if I eat a little bit of chocolate each time I study, perhaps I can condition myself to equate studying with feelings of pleasure and eventually get to the point where studying = yummy happy goodness.

What do you think? Could it work? Thoughts, tips? Am I just ridiculously silly for thinking of this?
