  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 18 muffin cups or use paper liners. Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and hot chocolate mix. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, olive oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour milk and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture, just until incorporated. Stir in the grated zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top of the cupcakes springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in pans over a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before removing from baking cups. They are really gooey fresh from the oven!

I perfected this recipe and highly recommend you try it with my variations! REMOVE: the sour milk, hot choc. mix, and 3/4 cups sugar. ADD: 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup applesauce, 1T cocoa powder...

I was not impressed with this recipe at all. We had high hopes, but no one cared much for them and they ended up in the trash.

These cupcakes were so good! I did use 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat flour and cut the sugar back to 1 1/4 cups. I used mini chocolate chips because it's what I had. They turned out great!!!
