Zucchini Brownies


This recipe is for the most moist, delicious brownies I've ever had....and the frosting recipe is so seriously good! I found an extra large zucchini in my garden and they make the best breads and brownies, so here goes!


Zucchini Brownies

2 cups flour
1/3 c baking cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cups walnuts (I'm allergic so I do not use nuts)
2 tsp vanilla

First: Mix flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl and set aside.

Second: In a separate bowl combine zucchini, sugar and oil. Stir in vanilla and then add dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Third:  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Cool for 30 minutes before frosting.

Frosting:  1/4 cup butter, 1 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup mini marshmallows, 1 tsp vanilla. 

In a saucepan bring butter, sugar and milk to a boil.  Boil on medium and stir for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows until melted.  Spread on top of brownies while warm. 

Delicious!
