Eating a lot of vegetables is hard to do. Luckily we have people like Nestle USA who come up with ways to trick yourself into eating them with this recipe for brownies that have zucchini in them. It may seem like an odd combination, but you cannot even tell you are eating veggies once the brownies are cooked.
This recipe is only slightly different from the original. This one uses regular chocolate chips and a different portion of zucchini because that was what was on hand.
