Substituted Christmas M&Ms for chips...very good

I don't have any unsweetened baking chocolate but I have cocoa powder is there a formula to convert that for what I need.

The formula is 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 4 tsp sugar, and 1 tbsp butter for every 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate bar. We havent tested this recipe with this formula so we aren't sure how it will turn out. Good luck!

can't wait to try these, they look so easy and good

those chocalate candy cookies look so good
