How about them apples…eh, zucchinis?! I’m actually talking about these muffins! It’s not your ordinary zucchini muffinschocolate makes everything better!

The second I saw some big and beautiful zucchinis at the farmer’s market, I could practically smell muffins. Oh boy, did they smell amazing when baking. No air freshener will ever come close to some fresh baked goodies, baking in the oven!

To kick these delicious muffins up a bit, I made some of my Hot Fudge Sauce to top ’em off. I forgot just how heavenly this sauce really is! Haven’t made it since my Coffee Mocha Blondies. (Boy, those smelled and tastes amazing! I should make them again.) It’s a very simple sauce but it’s so smooth and creamy, you will find yourself eating it with a spoon in the corner! Disclosure: I am not responsible to the consequences after you eat the entire jar of this sauce and follow it up with a muffin!!

    I was just thinking I haven’t baked anything with zucchini yet! It was total fate that I should stumble upon these muffins. And yes, chocolate makes anything better! Love these Lyuba!

    These muffins sound delicious with or without the hot fudge sauce, although I personally love hot fudge sauce. What a great idea to take a simple zucchini muffin to a whole new level of goodness! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
