I bought 99% chocolate just to see what it was like...long story short - not for eating, but a can of left over condensed milk in the fridge gave me an idea. 

5.4 oz of 99% chocolate (3 bars)
1/4 c heavy cream
6 tbsp condensed milk
1 tbsp orange extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder + 1/2 tsp cinnamon 

Heat heavy cream, stirring until very warm. Add in condensed milk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate and orange extract. Mix to a uniform consistency.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Scoop spoonfuls and roll into balls. Drop into combined cocoa and cinnamon mixture. Roll to cover.  Refrigerate for another 2 hours before enjoying. 

Makes about 25 truffles.
