Can I substitute semisweet choc for bittersweet?

shpitzlefan | Jun 3, 2008 02:39 PM

I'm making Dorie Greenspan's brownies, and the recipe calls for :
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate,
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate,
and 3/4 of a cup of sugar.

Can I substitute semisweet chocolate chips? A trip to the store is not in the cards right now.

Also, since I've got you all reading this, a single batch is baked in an 8" square pan. Any thoughts on the pan I should use for a triple batch? I'd like to minimize the edges, so that means three 8" pans is not the best answer.
