  1. Stir the marmalade to loosen it a little, then spread over the base of the tart case. Put the cream and sugar in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on high for 1 min, stirring halfway, until steaming but not bubbling. Add the chopped chocolate and set aside for 2 mins before stirring together.

  2. Pour the ganache directly over the marmalade, then spread out to level. Leave to set in the fridge for 1 hr. Use a vegetable peeler to peel curls from the remaining chocolate; top the tart with the orange slices and curls. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
