Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Brownie Recipe


Zucchini crop getting out of hand? The following recipe for decadent Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Brownies is a great way to use up that zucchini, and no one will be the wiser. The grated zucchini in these brownies is virtually invisible, but adds moistness, body, and a few vitamins and minerals. Chocoholics everywhere, whether zucchini lovers or not, will love the gooey chocolate and pecans on top. While Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Brownies are best eaten the day they are made when the chocolate is still very soft, they keep well at room temperature for several days if stored tightly covered.

Quick and easy, these brownies start with the versatile Mom’s Brownie Mix, which can be kept on the pantry shelf for several weeks or in the refrigerator for longer storage. Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate works well in this recipe, and is easy to cut into chunks, but depending on how high-end you want your brownies, you can also use high-quality, more expensive chocolate that’s 60-80% Cacao.

These luscious brownies are perfect to take to a backyard barbecue or potluck, or they are a good snack to pig-out on and eat the whole batch (Don’t ask me how I know). They are especially great with homemade ice cream.

32 Brownies

4 cups Mom’s Brownie Mix
2 cups packed grated zucchini (about 1 pound)
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups chopped pecan halves
10 ounces dark chocolate, cut into irregular chunks (about 1/4" to 1/3")
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Spray a 9 x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray.

  3. Mix the Brownie Mix, zucchini, eggs, and vanilla.

  4. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.

  5. Sprinkle the nuts and chocolate over the surface.

  6. Bake 30-35 minutes or until set (do not overbake).

  7. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack before cutting into 32 squares.
