I've never made volcano, but I really do not see the diference in the making, the result might be a diferent taste, but it should work anyway. I wonder why they recomend un-sweetened one anyway. I say go ahead and use it.

Do you have any unsweetened cocoa on hand? If so, you can substitute 3 tablespoons of that and 1 tablespoon of melted butter. This would make up for one ounce of unsweetened chocolate.

Everyone knows I'm no baker but I would say if your recipe calls for sugar to use a bit less.

8 oz. = 1 cup.

Actually, a 6 oz package of choc chips is considered 1 cup, so depending on how coarsely you chop that chocolate ... but more is always better in my book! I think more would just yield more lava in this recipe. Yum!
