I’ve made this several times, and I prefer it with bittersweet chocolate. I’ve used Ghirardelli’s 70% bars and this works very well. I’d say use a chocolate that you like.

Use 4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and 4 teaspoons of sugar, or semisweet chocolate. I don't recommend you use chocolate chips. Depending on the company, chips will contain other fats than just cocoa butter, and possibly have stabilizers as well so they hold shape when baked to some extent. The chocolate in a bar is generally better quality chocolate, too. So whatever chocolate you decide to use, make it with a bar version.

Agree with Lori on bar chocolate better quality and better in cooking than chocolate chips.
In a pinch, you could also use cocoa powder (3 tbsp or 45 ml), granulated sugar (4 tsp or 20 ml) and 1 tbsp (15 ml) butter, oil or shortening for EVERY oz (28g) of chocolate in original recipe.
