ie, as if dark and semi-sweet or dark and bittersweet were 2 different types of chocolate. The term "dark" chocolate is the category - the semi-sweet and bittersweet are the only two included in that category. (although, there is a "German Sweet Dark Chocolate" by Baker's, which is much sweeter than the semi-sweet, but as far as I know, it's rarely used by serious bakers). The differences, of course, lie in the various cacao percentages of the semi-sweet and bittersweet.


A balanced diet is equal parts of milk and dark chocolate.
