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.
What do you do when life gives you piles of fresh green vegetables? Start baking, of course. Zucchini makes cakes, muffins and breads naturally moist and delicious.
