Separate eggs.   Add sugar to the egg yolks and beat until pale and fluffy.

In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Add chocolate mixture to egg yolk mixture and mix well. Add almond meal and marmalade (if using a chunky marmalade, roughly chop the citrus rind before adding) and combine well.
