Recipe Comments & Reviews

Very tasty.! I also used mini chocolate bits, but sprinkled them over the glaze as it was setting up.
I made this recipe to share at work - everyone loved it! It was very moist and the flavor was yummy! I also added mini chocolate chips and left off the white chocolate drizzle.
This recipe was great. Will make again. I doubled this recipe and I added 1/2 cup of extra zucchini. It turned out great.
Will definitely make again. Everyone loved it!
The choclate zucchini bread has an excellent taste and great texture!
This turned out very well. Definitely will make again.
Everything went just as it should for a first time try. It is a delicious chocolate zucchini bread even without the white chocolate drizzle. I will definately make it again!
