Best Answer

There is no butter in Baking Chocolate; the fat is "cocoa butter", which is very different to dairy butter. The amount of cocoa solids in baking chocolate varies between brands, but it is usually listed as a percentage on the packaging of the bar.

How do you substitute cocoa butter to cocoa powder?

You cannot; they are very different things. Cocoa butter is a pure solid fat, not unlike unfractionated coconut oil. It is the primary constituent of (good) white chocolate (along with sugar). Cocoa butter is not at all chocolatey in taste; it's white in colour and commonly used in moisturisers. Cocoa powder is the chocolate part of the cocoa bean, usually used for baking. Cocoa powder and cocoa butter both have very different properties and uses; they are not interchangeable.
