Chocolate Marble Zucchini Bread

This twist on zucchini bread combines the best of both worlds: cinnamon and spice with decadent triple chocolate. Don’t worry about squeezing excess liquid from the zucchini — it will keep the bread moist! Before you bake, swirl the two batters together with a skewer or knife for a perfect marbling effect. For the best slice, let the bread cool completely before serving — but you might not be able to wait that long!
