Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Dense, moist and oh, so decadent, Chocolate Zucchini Bread



The Best Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My kids are not particularly fussy when it comes to food, but truth be told, zucchini isn’t usually on their list of favorite vegetables. Of course, when it’s tucked away inside this luscious Chocolate Zucchini Bread, they’re definitely huge fans! When I make this bread, I know that by the next day it will all be gone. They love to take it to school and share with their friends. It’s always a hit with the kids, but adults will love it too. It’s dense and moist with a rich chocolaty flavor that’s hard to resist. I generally use a top quality chocolate bar, but you could also use cocoa powder if you prefer.
