What do you get when you want to eat something and its got to be sweet and it's got to be chocolate and you gotta have it now? ( I think I just ripped off an old Cracker Jack ad song).
I am not boycotting the grocery store, but we are definitely trying to eat everything I had frozen last summer and at the same time I am reloading it with this summer's produce. I found a bag of shredded zucchini and needed to use it. It is probably my least favorite of the squashes because it squeaks when I chew it and I prefer my food to remain silent. ( Sounds weird, I know but it is a noisy vegetable. I have no issue with loud crunchy raw vegetables but once they are cooked they should surrender and remain silent. Zucchini always sounds like it is launching a meek protest.) Since I was going to cook the whiney vegetable anyway, I thought it might as well be something delicious. Something chocolate. Something with enough non traditional vegetable ingredients to tame that zucchini into silent submission.
Viola! I found a recipe at The Recipe Critic. I had most of the ingredients and the things about it that I didn't like were flavors that could be altered without impacting the actual bread. ( I have an aversion to chocolate combined with cinnamon. I love both flavors individually but they scream a huge foul in my mouth when tasted as one) I am writing the recipe as I made it but check out the original. It might be more to your liking.
