Perfect. Saves $ too. Great for countries where you can't get unsweetened baking chocolate.

Thank you! I knew it could be done and probably required butter. I only have unsweetened chocolate in the house for my Cincinnati chili. You rock my world, because I always have cocoa powder in the house. Just didn't know the measurements. Thank you

Saw this come up in a cooking tag game and thought it like something I need to try as I cannot begin to count the times I have come up short or been out of unsweetened chocolate when it is called for and boy am I glad I did as it has worked out fabulously both times I have used it. I made as written using butter and special dark cocoa. Thanks for the 10 start post that I will be using again :)

I've used this many times; it works perfectly. I don't understand the review that calls it "too chocolatey". Surely the idea of adding chocolate is to make the result chocolatey? Anyway, this is something I go to again and again. Thanks for posting!

This worked well in a pinch... but I thought it was a little too chocolatey... I increased my whole recipe so the chocolate flavor wouldn't be overwhelming. Still, it was a better solution for me than making a special trip to the store. Next time I would use about 2/3 the amount called for. Thanks for the recipe!

This was great. I was craving brownies and my favourite recipe uses unsweetened chocolate squares but I had none left. Luckily I remembered stumbling across this sub. a while back and it worked wonderfully! I used the melted butter option. Worked perfectly! Thanks for posting!

I needed to make a second batch of Chocolate Snowflake Cookies (#15229) for my mother-in-law but didn't have enough unsweetened chocolate squares and didn't really want to go out and buy more. This worked perfectly and the cookies made with the substitution taste exactly the same as the ones that were made with the actual squares. I used the melted shortening option. Thanks so much for posting!!!
