Unsweetened chocolate is sometimes called baking chocolate and you need to read the fine print. Some baking chocolate is unsweetened and some is semisweet. How is the chocolate added to the cake?

Look in the baking isle of your store. It comes in a smallish box. There are several brands out there - this one seems to be the easiest to find....

Here the Ingredients 12 ounces semisweet chocolate 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate. You use them like this
In a medium saucepan, bring the espresso, brown sugar and the cinnamon sticks to a simmer over very low heat. Simmer until the syrup is very fragrant, about 20 minutes. Stir in the butter until melted, and then stir in the cayenne pepper. Set aside.
Pulse the chocolate in the food processor until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a deep bowl. Pour in the warm coffee syrup and whisk until the chocolate is completely melted

Okay kobefn, I was looking to see if it was being melted or just chopped and added. Sometimes you can sub cocoa powder for unsweetened chocolate in recipes but you will need to find it in the store. Look for something like JanetH showed you. It should be readily available at any grocery store in the baking section. Good Luck!
