These are so moist and chocolaty. A recipe passed down from my mother-in-law who passed away 10 years ago. The first time I made these my husband and I cried as he said, 'This is my mom!' So to honor a special woman whose 5 food groups were chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake, brownies, chocolate candy, and chocolate ice cream, I give you the ultimate brownie recipe!

  • Whisk white sugar, canola oil, and eggs together in a bowl. Mix flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir sugar mixture into flour mixture; add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix batter. Fold zucchini and nuts into batter; pour onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool brownies completely.

  • Stir 6 tablespoons cocoa powder and melted butter together in a bowl; stir in confectioners' sugar, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until frosting is smooth. Spread frosting on brownies.

Cook's Note:

Depending on the size of your brownies, you might have more bars. My husband's mom was very generous with her portions.
