Let's Make It
1. Almond Crust: In a small bowl combine 1 1/2 cups toasted blanched almonds and 1/4 cup packed brown sugar. Place a portion at a time in a food processor bowl or blender container: cover and process or blend until nuts are finely ground. Transfer to medium bowl. Stir in all-purpose flour. Add melted unsalted butter or regular butter, stirring until well combined. Press mixture onto bottom and 1 inch up side of a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom or a 9 inch springform pan. Bake in a 325 degrees F oven about 20 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch. Cool crust in pan on a wire rack.
2. In a small saucepan, heat whipping cream over medium heat just until simmering. Remove from heat; whisk in semi-sweet chocolate until smooth. If desired, whisk in Grand Marnier. Cool about 30 minutes or until filling begins to thicken but is still pourable.
3. Spread marmalade over bottom of Almond Crust. Pour chocolate filling over marmalade. Cover and chill in refrigerator about 2 hours or until set. To serve, remove side of pan. Use a sharp knife to cut tart into wedges.
