This bread was inspired by a book report my then second grader had to do about Native American Indians. Appropriate props, including food, were encouraged. Some of the ingredients available to them were corn, a variety of squashes, and cocoa (chocolate). I adapted a basic zucchini nut loaf recipe from the old standby cookbook Better Homes and Gardens, with several variations, namely, chocolate! Oddly enough, zucchini and chocolate is a marriage made in heaven. —rarepair
