substitute 1 tsp baking soda with 2 tsp of double-acting baking powder plus replace the acidic liquid ingredient in the recipe with a non-acidic liquid.

I think this also depends on the recipe.

There is no way you could replace the chocolate in a recipe. Also too much BP and you get a soapy taste. Your best bet is to run to a store! I made a chocolate cupcake recipe last week. I'm chatting away while putting it together and totally missed that I put in baking powder instead of soda. The cupcakes never rose and had a hallow center that came from the bottom up. I stood there scratching my head wondering why my recipe didn't work and that is when I noticed the PB sitting on the counter.

I chalked it up to a learning experience and made another batch. They came out beautiful with the right ingredients.
