    These were well-received by my husband and the rest of his police crew. I used half brown sugar and half white, plus half butter and half Crisco. I would cut the flour down a little since they were a touch dry. Definitely a cakey-cookie, like the consistency of a pumpkin cookie. Also, grated the zucchini instead of chopped. Thanks for the recipe.  -  29 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are delicious! I doubled the amount of chocolate and used chocolate chunks instead of the mini chips. My husband could not stop eating, and he avoids everything with zucchini  -  18 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Different but good. Light, cakey but definitly needed more chocolate to add flavor, I used 1.5-2 cups of Milk Chocolate Chips. (Chocolate makes almost anything good ) I added 1 cup of chopped Walnuts. My husband thought they were ok but suggested I try raisins next time instead of Chocolate. (He's not a big chocolate fan) Not a bad idea! I will try this again!  -  01 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
