Default Golden light extract HELP!!!!

So I have a buddy that wants’ to use dark malt extract and I only carry
Golden light, amber and Wheat DME, right now. He has a recipe that calls for dark DME. He "is" using steeping grains. What should I add to the grain bill to add to the "Dark" that he will be missing from the Golden light DME that I carry?
HELP!!!
Cheers
Jay

The recipe already has roast, black patent, and caramel malt in there. The only thing I can think of is that the total of 0.5 lb of roasted malt isn't enough. I'd add some chocolate malt, maybe 0.5 lb.

So maybe .50 of roast and .50 of Choco. leave the Black malt @ .25#? Sounds good to me.
