Zucchini Brownies

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups white sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 cups shredded zucchini

6 T. unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup milk

1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 in. pan.

In a large bowl, mix oil, sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla until well blended. Combine flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into sugar mixture. Fold in zucchini. Spread into pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes, until brownies spring back when gently touched.

To make frosting, melt together 6 T. of cocoa and butter; set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, blend together powdered sugar, milk, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Stir in the cocoa mixture. Spread over cooled brownies before cutting into squares.
