Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies with Homemade Chocolate Whipped Cream

Some of our best friends just moved away to Michigan.  They are like family to us and I swear Owen would live with them if he could {at least for a few days}.  We helped them load their stuff into the moving truck the night before they left and when it was time so say goodbye Owen stood in the back of the truck saying “I want to go to Michigan!”  in the cutest, whiny and sad little voice a two year old’s got.

The next morning the first thing he said when he woke up was “Mommy, I want to go to Michigan”  in that same sad voice.

Gosh I hate goodbyes.

Before they left we had a little farewell dinner with other friends too.  After dinner we came to our house to drown our sorrows in chocolate with brownies.  Then we drowned our brownies in chocolate too.

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Brownies, drowned in Chocolate Whipped Cream.

Speaking of which, if you’ve never made chocolate whipped cream, it’s a must!  I could eat regular whipped cream by the spoonfuls, but chocolate whipped cream I could eat by the bowlfuls.

 
For the brownies, I grated the zucchini so fine you can’t even see it in there.  But it’s there, and it makes these babies so moist and fudgy.

You can find this recipe, and a billion other zucchini recipes over at Two Peas & Their Pod. Thanks Maria!
