Since you mention the Kraft website - are you trying to make one of the Kraft Chocolate Cheesecake recipes using cocoa powder instead of bar chocolate?

Jennyema gave you some good advice a couple of days ago ... but here is another "how to sub chocolates" website at Baking 911

Thanks Micheal, I've taken note of the site. The problem I was having was this: the recipies were saying i.e. one square of chocolate, the great information that Jennyema gave me was saying 28g or 32g (plus oz equivalents). I wanted to believe that one square was an oz or 28 grams but dared not... ← if you didn't know this is a chicken.

Thanks Micheal...

Here are a few recipes for chocolate cheesecake that don't include Baker's Chocolate. Perhaps you can tweak the recipe to your liking. (The coffee liqueur and maple syrup sound interesting.)

(I would definitely omit the cookies on the outside here .)

Waw, this is great. To late for my present needs, but is on my future cheese cake list. When I make cheese cake for a friend I make it with all the works, fat and all, but for myself I think I could use something with a little bit less fat and sugar. These recipes are definitely worth checking out.

Oh ya, I'd lose the cookies too.

Thanks
