Chocolate-Orange Tart


  • 1 recipe Almond Crust (see recipe below)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped, or one 6-ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces (1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, other orange liqueur, or brandy (optional)
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 ounce white chocolate
Almond Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups toasted blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter or regular butter, melted

Prepare the Almond Crust and set aside.
For filling, in a small saucepan, heat whipping cream to simmering. Remove from heat; whisk in semisweet chocolate until smooth. Whisk in Grand Marnier or other liqueur, if you like. Cool until filling begins to thicken, but is still pourable, about 30 minutes.
Spread marmalade over bottom of cooled crust. Pour the chocolate filling over marmalade. Cover; chill for about 20 minutes or until filling isn't quite set.
Using a vegetable peeler, shave the white chocolate and sprinkle over the tart. Cover and chill for about 2 hours or until filling is firm. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Almond Crust
Combine almonds and brown sugar. In a food processor bowl or blender container, process or blend, a portion at a time, until nuts are finely ground. Transfer to mixing bowl. Stir in flour. Add melted butter, stirring until well combined. Press mixture onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom, or a 9-inch springform pan. Bake in a 325 degree F oven about 20 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Prepare tart up to 24 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
