Method Prep:20min › Cook:35min › Ready in:55min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20cm square baking tin.
Over low heat, melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
In a large bowl, beat sugars and eggs until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes with electric mixer. Add melted chocolate, 3 tablespoons of the Grand Marnier, vanilla and the orange zest, mixing until well blended. Mix in the flour, salt and chocolate chips, on low speed if using an electric mixer.
Pour batter into prepared tin. Smooth the top. Bake for 30-35 until sides look done and top feels firm. Inserting a skewer 5cm from centre should come out clean; however, centre will jiggle and look undercooked.
Remove from oven and brush top with the remaining 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier. Cover tin with foil and cool completely. Cut into 5cm squares. Store covered at room temperature or they may be frozen. Defrost covered at room temperature.
