Can I make truffles with 85% chocolate instead of regular bittersweet?

My plan is to heat the cream with blackstrap molasses and pour over the chocolate with some vanilla and cinnamon. I had a truffle like this recently at a chocolate shop and it was heavenly. I want try to recreate it at home. i've never made truffles with anything other than 60% chocolate.

You will be pleased with the 85. Although you might want to add a tiny bit of sweet to it. Sounds like a nice recipe.

It'll just depends on your taste. If you enjoy really dark chocolates, you may really like it. It will be different than the ones you made with 60% chocolate. If you haven't, taste the 85% and compare that to what you usually use. Adjust your ingredients accordingly after.
