Semisweet vs bittersweet

Nalega | Feb 13, 2007 04:55 AM

I have to do the birthday thing AND the valentines day thing all in one week! Birthday dinner is tonight, and I'm all set except -

I'm making a molten chocolate lava cake (paula deen recipe from, and it calls for 6 oz of bitter sweet chocolate AND 2 oz of semi sweet. I'm always well stocked with various chocolate squares for baking, and I have plenty of semi sweet. Do they make bitter sweet squares? Should I just buy a chocolate bar? Are they interchangeable?

Help! Thanks!
