Death By Chocolate Zucchini Bread is a decadent spin on the classic zucchini bread. Amped up with cocoa and chocolate chips, it’s highly addictive and crazy delicious!
It’s that time of year when the zucchini invasion is upon us. It seems like you pick one zucchini and three more appear overnight! You’re probably exhausting all possible ways of using it up. . . baking, frying, sautéing, spiralizing, etc. Who knows, maybe you’ve even tried sneaking out incognito at night and left some on neighbor’s doorsteps (lol!). If you find yourself in any of the aforementioned scenarios, I’ve got your back today.
I’m just going to warn you right up front about this Death by Chocolate Zucchini Bread. It’s definitely more like you’re eating a decadent chocolate cake. . . it’s addicting in the worst way.
This bread is seriously fantastic! This recipe is simple and uncomplicated which makes it even more fantastic! Simply whisk the dry ingredients together and set aside. Then whisk the wet ingredients, fold in the zucchini, then gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake until moist crumbs appear on a toothpick.
Now you just need to practice a little patience while it cools. Oh and don’t feel guilty when you find yourself inhaling your third slice, after all it is loaded with zucchini😉.
Do You Need To Peel Zucchini For This Bread?
I think it’s a personal preference here. I like to peel zucchini when I’m using it for baking, but it’s not necessary. Sometimes I will partially peel it, leaving just a few strips of the skin on for color if I’m making regular zucchini bread. Go ahead and do whatever way you’d prefer it. *Peeling it does disguise it a little more if you’ve got picky eaters and you’re trying to hide it (lol!).
What is the best way to grate zucchini?
You can use a hand or box grater or a food processor. If I’m using my grater, I like to use the larger grate because I feel like the smaller grater can make your zucchini turn to mush. If I use my food processor, I use the grating disc with the larger holes.Print
