substituting cocoa powder for unsweetened chocolate

Does anyone know how to substitute cocoa powder for unsweetened chocolate since there are no unsweetened chocolate bars for passover?

  1. My box of Nestle cocoa powder says:

    3 level Tablespoons + 1 Tablespoon shortening or oil=1 square (1 ounce) unsweetened chocolate

    Hope you have a happy Passover!

    1. re: Val

      is that pure shortening or vegetable oil in liquid form?

      1. re: koshergourmetmart

        Either will work, but the oil is a little less bad for you- I use cocoa + vegetable oil year round as a replacement for unsweetened chocolate, since it's hard to find non-dairy.

    2. How do you substitute it the other way, cocoa with unsweetened cocoa?
