   ~----
   SELECTING THE RIGHT CHOCOLATE:  You'll find three basic types of chocolate
   in the baking supplies department of most supermarkets-- semisweet
   chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and sweet chocolate.  The semisweet
   chocolate is made from chocolate that is just slight sweetened with sugar.
   Unsweetened chocolate is the original baking or cooking chocolate and has
   no added flavorings or sugar.  And sweet chocolate, such as the German
   cooking chocolate used in the Chocolate Pots de Creme recipe, is
   chocolate mixed with sugar and sometimes additional cocoa butter or
   flavorings.
