Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

If you like soft, moist, CHOCOLATE cookies, raise your hand!! Everyone in my house has their hands raised! Besides, who has a bunch of zucchini to use? I DO!!! This time of year, it seems like we all try our hardest to find some inventive ways to use our zucchini. It's just such a versatile vegetable and I always think I'm so tricky when my "picky" one enjoys every single bite, not knowing he is eating a VEGETABLE!!! ha ha!! Got him again! These cookies look so chocolatey and it really isn't obvious that they're filled with zucchini! I think if you like nuts, they would be good with 1/2 cup chopped walnuts... and I also think they'd be really yummy with a simple chocolate frosting! Make this recipe your own!

Believe me, I will be posting many many more recipes using zucchini!

This recipe yields 4 dozen with a small cookie scoop....
