OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHOCOLATE DELICIOUSNESS!!!

So when I was looking for a zucchini bread recipe I was talking to one of my friends and she reminded me of chocolate zucchini cupcakes I made 4 years ago...............seriously, 4 years?!?!?! They must have been good if she still remembered them so it was time to go searching for the recipe again. I found it but I had notes written next to it and could not remember exactly which ones I used so I went back to the comments section.  I made them for work but didn't tell people at first they had zucchini in them because I wanted to make sure that they liked them and were not predjuiced from the ouset. 

I love this frosting recipe - I elieve I had to make more than one batch...........Can't remember.
