The Best Zucchini Brownies

I’m waging war once again this summer against the onslaught of zucchini coming from just two plants in my garden.  It’s insane!  This recipe was a big hit around here, I hardly had any while the hubs and son gobbled it up!

brownies

1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup chocolate chips

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 cup sugar

1 egg and 1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup grated or ground zucchini

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup flour

frosting

1/4 cup butter

2 tablespoons cocoa

1/4 cup chocolate chips

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1  For the brownies, preheat oven to 350.  Line a 9 x 13″ baking pan with parchment paper.  Lightly spray parchment with cooking spray.

2  In medium saucepan, melt oil, chocolate chips and cocoa over medium heat.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla, and zucchini.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Pour into pan, spreading evenly and bake 15 – 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted near center.

3  For the frosting, while brownies are baking, melt butter, cocoa, chocolate chips and milk together then simmer gently for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and powdered sugar.

4  When brownies are out of the oven, pour hot frosting immediately over hot brownies.  Spread to smooth.  Cool 5 – 10 minutes before digging in.
