Does anyone know what the difference is between Duncan Hines Swiss Chocolate and their Dark Chocolate Fudge?

Local grocery store in TX, had Duncan Hines on sale for 79cts a box.

Got there they only had the Swiss Chocolate.

If it's not as sweet that would work in my favor.

Can I add more cocoa to it? Should I go back to my supply place and get some chocolate oil? It's for a kid so I can mess around with liqueurs.

Sorry, don't have the answer as I have always wondered myself. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, german chocolate, swiss chocolate, etc, etc. I know there are some color differences but what about taste, etc?

I'm guessing the swiss chocolate is probably a soft, lighter chocolate than the dark chocolate fudge. You can definetly add cocoa powder to it with out messing up the mix. I also also throw in a few spoons of cocoa powder into every chocolate cake I do.

Yes the swiss is lighter in flavor.
