Because bittersweet chocolate is high in pure chocolate (at least 35 percent cocoa solids), it's best used when a deep chocolate flavor is called for. It's also a great eating chocolate. Semisweet chocolate, which has more sugar and fewer cocoa solids than bittersweet, can often be substituted in recipes without significantly affecting the flavor or texture.

Julia Child's Chocolate Mousse // Lebovitz describes Julia’s mousse as having “a perfect, slightly-gummy texture, backed up by a wallop of pure dark chocolate flavor.” This “gumminess” or chew is what I love about parfait and what I love about Julia’s chocolate mousse — it doesn’t just taste like chocolate-flavored whipped cream. It has body with a lightness coming exclusively from beaten egg whites. // @alexandracooks
