Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Cookies

Got Zucchini?? What to do with ALL that zucchini that you can't pick fast enough from your garden? These chewy & chocolaty cookies will be your new favorite! The zucchini makes them especially moist & delicious! Mmm...

1 1/4 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely shredded zucchini
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

 Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper and set aside.
 In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa powder and sugars. The mixture will be thick and resemble sand-that's ok. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.
Gradually add to the flour mixture, stirring until moist. Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips.
 Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until almost set. Cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes or until cookies are firm. Remove cookies from sheet and cool completely on wire racks.
Note-Squeeze the shredded zucchini in a paper towel and pat dry to remove the excess water before using.
