These were pretty good. Not quite what I was looking for, but not bad. Before adding the zucchini, the dough is very sandy/crumbly; once you add the zucchini, make sure you mix well to moisten all the flour and cocoa powder before "pressing" the batter into your pan. The frosting wasn't bad but it wasn't great; I've never used margarine in a frosting before, but I went ahead and gave it a try and thought it ended up too greasy. My frosting separated and I ended up having the pour off some oil from the top of the frosting, and then it came together smoothly. I don't think it's as good as a butter frosting, though. The brownies themselves have a pretty strong zucchini flavor, for a dessert. They're sweet, but at the same time, you can tell there's something in them. My husband, who normally can't tell if I "hide" stuff in breads or brownies, immediately was able to identify the zucchini in this recipe. The brownies are not overly chocolatey like a "traditional" brownie is. Overall, I'd say these are average.
