In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
As you and your family eat the chocolates which contained pork gelatine unintentionally, there is no sin in your actions.
It is desirable, but not necessary to vomit out anything haram one has consumed.
It is mentioned in a hadith in Sahih Bukhari that, "Saaiduna Abu Bakr had a slave who used to give him some of his earnings. Saaiduna Abu Bakr used to eat from it. One day he brought something and Saaiduna Abu Bakr ate from it. The slave said to him, “Do you know what this is?” Saaiduna Abu Bakr then enquired, “What is it?” The slave said, “Once, in the pre-Islamic period of ignorance I foretold somebody’s future though I did not know this knowledge of foretelling but I cheated him, and when he met me, he gave me something for that service, and that is what you have eaten from.” Then Saaiduna Abu Bakr put his hand in his mouth and vomited whatever was present in his stomach" (Mazahirul Haqq p.450 v.3)
