FOR CRUST: Combine yolks, orange peel and orange juice in small bowl. Combine
flour, nuts, powdered sugar and salt in processor. Cut in butter until mixture
resembles coarse meal, using on-off turns. With machine running, pour egg
mixture in through feed tube and process just until dough gathers together
(dough will be very moist). Wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to
350 degrees. Butter 10-inch springform pan. Place dough in pan and press over
bottom and 3/4 inch up sides. Even edges. Bake until crust is brown, about 25
minutes. Meanwhile, PREPARE FILLING: Beat cheese and sugar until light and
fluffy. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Mix in lemon peel, Grand Marnier and
chocolate chips. Spoon filling into crust. Bake until just set, about 35
minutes. Cool. Cover cake and refrigerate overnight. FOR GLAZE: Heat
chocolate and butter in top of double boiler over barely simmering water,
stirring until melted and smooth. Mix sugar, water and Grand Marnier in small
bowl until sugar dissolves. Add to chocolate and stir until smooth. Remove
from over water and let stand until cool but still pourable. Remove pan sides
from cake. Pour glaze atop cake and spread over top and sides. Refrigerate
until set (can be prepared 6 hours ahead). Arrange orange slices around side of
cake. Garnish with orange segments and mint. Serve, passing sauce separately.
