Please help! Sub for semisweet or bittersweet chocolate advice

anakalia | Jun 18, 2010 02:32 PM

I'm all set to make David Lebovitz's cheesecake brownie recipe -- but I realized I bought unsweetened chocolate squares instead of the "4 ounces (115g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate," the recipe calls for.

I really don't feel like going to the grocery store again tonight. Any advice on how I can sub in the unsweetened chocolate for this?

I found some advice elsewhere online that says to "Use 1/2 oz. of unsweetened chocolate and 1 Tbsp sugar for every 1 oz. of bittersweet chocolate called for in the recipe."

Does this make sense? Anyone tried that before?

Thanks!
