No doubt about the chocolate impact. In fact I cut the unsweetened chocolate back to 3 ounces and I stopped weighing the cocoa at 3.5 ounces when it reached 2 cups! If I make these again I'll certainly use more Splenda I included chopped hazelnuts which are lovely. I love bittersweet chocolate and this amount of unsweetened chocolate and cocoa was stronger than even I loved (and I didn't use all that was ask for). I was truly surprised that with all of the oil and egg that they are quite dry and I recommend that you plan to have milk or coffee at hand. The coffee addition is wonderful.
