What is the difference between dutch process chocolate and unsweetened chocolate?

Dutch Process Cocoa is the same as Alkalized unsweetened Cocoa Powder that has been treated with an alkali to neutralize its natural acidity. Because it is neutral and does not react with baking soda, it must be used in recipes calling for baking powder, unless there are other acidic ingredients in sufficients quantities used. Unsweetened cocoa has complex chocolate flavor while dutch process is darker and more mellow. Its intense flavor makes it well suited for use in brownies, cookies and some chocolate cakes. When natural cocoa is ued in recipes calling for baking soda, it creates a leavening action that casused the batter to rise when placed in the oven. To substitute Dutch Process with Unsweetened Cocoa: 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder plus a pinch (1/8) teaspoon baking soda for every 1-ounce of Dutch Process Cocoa called for in the recipe. To Substitue Unsweetened Cocoa with Dutch Process Substiture equal amounts of Dutch Process for the Unsweetened and leave out any baking soda that is called for in the recipe.

What is the difference between baking chocolate and regular chocolate?

None specifically. The kind of chocolate used for baking should be high in cocoa solids - percentages are usually listed on both baking and eating chocolate. As long as you buy an eating chocolate high in cocoa solids (65% or higher), it will be fine to bake with (assuming no weird "fondant centres" or "caramel chunks" etc...). I think 'baking chocolate' is primarily sold to people who do not bake often, so do not know what to look for when choosing a chocolate variety with which to bake.
