Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

Makes two loaves of very decadent chocolate zucchini bread. This tastes almost like a chocolate brownie because I prefer to make mine with milk chocolate chips.

This recipe freezes very well. I make 6 or more of these in a season. Wrap each loaf once cooled with tin foil. Then wrap with seran. Mark as chocolate zucchini loaf. Thaw in the fridge overnight, and it will be just like new.

PS – a slice tastes even better toasted in the toaster oven!
