1/3 cup unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup walnuts
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
Optional: 1/4 cup candied orange peels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a 9-inch square pan.
Melt butter and chocolate together over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Add sugar and marmalade. Beat until blended.
Add eggs and vanilla; mix.
Add flour, nuts and salt. Stir to blend.
Spread in pan. Bake 25 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan.
Cool slightly on wire rack.
Make the ganache:
Bring the cream to a boil in a small saucepan, and pour it over the chopped chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. Let stand for 1 minute.
Gently whisk in the butter, until both the butter and chocolate are melted.
Spread ganache on cooled brownies. Let stand until set, about 15 minutes
Top with candied orange peels.
