A few weeks ago, I shared a recipe for Apple Zucchini Bread that a friend had made. She brought over a box of goodies after Brent's surgery. This is another recipe I asked for ...Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread....who can resist that? It was moist and delicious, and most important..had a wonderful chocolate flavor, each piece studded with chocolate chips!
