Semi-sweet chocolate is a type of chocolate that contains less sugar and more cocoa solids than milk chocolate. It typically has a more bitter taste with some sweetness, hence it is referred to as bittersweet, and is commonly used in baking and cooking. It usually contains between 50% to 70% cocoa content and may be labeled as dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate.
