Chocolate Zucchini Bread Recipe

This is incredibly good. It’s very chocolatey and very moist. It’s loaded with chocolate chips and pecan pieces. (You can omit the nuts.)

It's as sweet and rich as a cake, more like a cake than a bread. (We've baked it in cake pans before.) And you can frost it but it really doesn't need the frosting. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is perfect. 

This will make you grow more zucchini next year.
