1. Put the chopped apricots into a bowl and cover with rum. Allow to
soak for about 20 minutes while making the rest of the preparations. 2.
Melt butter in a bowl large enough to mix the batter in. Add the sugar,
eggs, cocoa, and vanilla. 3. Combine the flour and baking powder, then
stir them into the chocolate. 4. Drain the apricots and stir them and the
chocolate chips into the batter. 5. Spread the batter in a lightly
greased 8x8-inch baking pan. 6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40
minutes, or until a toothpick comes out barely moist. 7. Cool in pan, cut
into squares and serve.
