“Hey Adrians Ladies…
You must make these moist delicious brownies to rid yourself of some zucchini and indulge in some chocolate!!
New favorite recipe of ours!!” ~Terrie G.

Thank you for sharing Terrie!  My mom used to “hide” zucchini in all kinds of things… now I LOVE Zucchini Season and use this delicious squash in many ways.  Thanks to modern grocery stores, I can get my Zucchini “FIX” year-round! 🙂  ~Vicki Adrian

Zucchini Brownies
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups finely shredded zucchini
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.  In a large bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and 2 tsp. vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Fold in the zucchini and walnuts. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies spring back when gently touched.
Frosting:  Melt together the 6 Tbsp of cocoa and margarine. Set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, blend together the powdered sugar, milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies before cutting into squares.
