ISO substitute for unsweetened cocoa powder in chili

I have a chili recipe that calls for 2 Tbls unsweetened cocoa powder. Can I just use a bit of a plain chocolate bar? If so how much? Thanks.

Sure. I've used both. Grate up the same amount of your chocolate bar.

I've used Hershey syrup before too with good results.

I wouldn't use a sweet chocolate for chili, myself.

But your results may vary ...

I've used a square of Baker's bittersweet chocolate.
