I have made this recipe many times now, and it gets rave reviews every time. I top this cake (because it is a cake!) with a chocolate cream cheese icing. It's dense and moist and delicious, it gets even better after a day or two (but doesn't always last that long) and it freezes well.

I can't figure out why this recipe is called Chocolate bars, when it really is a cake. The author of the recipe even calls them cookies! This is a cake, folks. It is good chocolate cake and a good way to use up extra zucchini.For the calorie counters: I substitued Lighter Bake for the butter, and it cuts the fat yet you lose no moisture or taste. I also cut the sugar some.

This recipe was pretty good. I was a little worried at first because the batter was quite thick and dry, but the cake(it is definately not a bar/cookie) turned out. I put a chocolate frosting on it which was good because the first 4 pieces that we ate were kind of dry, but I think that it was because they were edge pieces. Had another piece from the middle a bit later and that piece was very moist. Oh yeah... I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
