Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I have more zucchini to use and was tired of the usual bread recipes so I went searching and stumbled on this recipe. Seriously, who doesn't love chocolate!?!? It's so good! I made 2 loaves and planned to take one into work, well....that didn't work out and we've already eaten one and are making a dent in the other one. I see this recipe becoming one of my favorites to make using zucchini.

2 - 1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave unsweetened chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil, zucchini, vanilla and melted chocolate. Beat well. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour batter into prepared loaf pans.

Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
