Semisweet chocolate is dark, sweetened eating chocolate made with at least 35% chocolate liquor plus cocoa butter. It is available in bars which may include added flavorings; and is also sold as morsels or chips. It may be used in recipes that call for bittersweet chocolate. In theory, there is more sugar in semisweet chocolate than in bittersweet, and a higher percentage of cacao in bittersweet, but the terms are sometimes used interchangeably.
