I am making a German chocolate cake for my dad's birthday. The recipe calls for "4 squares of sweet German chocolate". I looked in the baking section of my grocery store, but didn't see any German chocolate. Do any of you know what type of chocolate I should use?

Apparently, German chocolate cakes are make with Baker's German chocolate (named after Mr. German the man that invented it) not the country. I can't find Baker's German chocolate squares and I am wondering what type of chocolate it is most like (milk chocolate or semi sweet)?

YOu are correct .. it is so called "german" after Mr. German, the man who invented a chocolate with the sugar already in it. It's a sweet chocolate ( go to www.ask.com and enter "what is german chocolate?" and you'll get lots of info.)
