Frosted Zucchini Brownies

by Laura

Who doesn’t love a good brownie? I found this recipe for zucchini brownies at the Taste of Home website. If you have never browsed this website you must. It is a great resource. If you are a subscriber to one of there magazines, it’s even better. They have some recipes only available for subscribers. They are usually recipes that were recently in their magazines. So in my quest to find recipes to use up my zucchini I went to this site and came across this recipe. Oh, my these are good. They are very moist, but they do have more of a cake like texture. So this could be called a cake, but how cares. Cake or brownie, I don’t care, it just delicious and it includes zucchini. You would probably never guess it, especially after the frosting is place on. One other thing about this recipe, there are NO EGGS in it. Hard to believe after seeing the end result. I didn’t do the nuts with this either for those picky people in my home. I am definitely going to put this is the tried and true file. I won’t be so worried about how much zucchini keeps coming out of my garden if I get to make these. Yummy!

Frosted Brownies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded zucchini
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, combine the zucchini, sugar and oil; stir into dry ingredients until blended. Stir in walnuts and vanilla. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. In a large saucepan, melt butter; stir in sugar and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Cook and stir 1 minute or until smooth. Remove from the heat. Stir in chips and marshmallows until melted and smooth; add vanilla. Spread over brownies. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
