  Chopped dried apricots 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped raisins 2 Tablespoon
  Cointreau/Other orange-flavored liqueur 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

1. In a small bowl, combine cherries, apricots, raisins, and Cointreau. Let stand at room temperature 2 to 3 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch square pan. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
3. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in 1 egg and vanilla until smooth. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed until a smooth, stiff batter forms, scraping down side of bowl frequently with a rubber spatula.
4. Stir melted chocolate into batter. Remove and reserve 1/4 cup chocolate batter. Turn remaining chocolate batter into prepared pan, leveling surface.
