Preparation / Directions:

Types of chocolate Unsweetened chocolate Also called bitter or baking chocolate, this is pure chocolate with no sugar or flavorings. It is used only in baking and is commonly packaged in individually wraped 1-ounce squares. Bittersweet chocolate This is pure chocolate with some sugar added. It is available in specialty food shops and some supermarkets, packaged in bars or 1-ounce squares. If unavailable, substitute half unsweetened chocolate and half semisweet chocolate. Semisweet chocolate This is pure chocolate combined with extra cocoa butter and sugar. It is sold in a variety of forms, including 1-ounce squares, bars, chips and chunks. Milk chocolate This is pure chocolate with sugar, extra cocoa butter, amd milk solids added. It is available in various shapes, bars, chips, stars, etc. White chocolate This is not considered real chocolate since most or all of the cocoa butter has been removed and replaced by another vegetable fat. White chocolate is available in bars, blocks, chips and chunks. Unsweetened cocoa This is formed by extracting most of the cocoa butter from pure chocolate and grinding the remaining chocolate solids into a powder. Since most of the cocoa butter is removed, it is low in fat. It contains no additives.
