Dark Chocolate Drizzled Grilled Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
Yields: 12 slices
This fun dessert is the perfect ending for a backyard barbeque! It’s ready in just a few minutes and great for serving to friends and family alike.
  1. To prepare the drizzle, stir together the cocoa powder, milk, and maple syrup in a small bowl. Transfer the mixture to a zip-topped bag, and set aside.
  2. To grill the zucchini bread, place a charcoal chimney on the bottom grate of a barbeque grill. Fill the chimney halfway full with Kingsford Original Briquets. Add 3-5 pieces of crumbled newspaper under the chimney. Light the newspaper with a match or long-nosed lighter. Let the briquets heat up for 20 minutes.
  3. Invert the chimney, and spread the briquets across the center of the bottom grate in an even layer using metal tongs or a metal spatula. Place the top grilling grate into the barbeque. Place the barbeque lid on top, leaving the air vent open, and let the briquets sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Lightly coat the top side of each slice of zucchini bread with nonstick cooking spray. Remove the barbeque lid, and carefully coat the top grate with nonstick cooking spray. Set the slices of zucchini bread onto the top grate over the briquets with the cooking spray side facing up. Let the slices cook for 2-3 minutes, or until lightly toasted, before flipping with a metal spatula or tongs. Cook the second side another 2-3 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove the zucchini bread from the grill.
  5. Just before serving, cut off a tiny corner of the chocolate sauce bag. Drizzle on top of the zucchini bread, and top with ice cream, if desired.
  6. Seal any leftover slices of zucchini bread in Glad Matchware Food Storage Containers, and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Notes: Any milk may be substituted for the nonfat milk.

Honey or agave may be substituted for the pure maple syrup.

For a sweeter drizzle, substitute additional pure maple syrup for some of the nonfat milk (the same amount).

If grilling the zucchini bread after cooking entrées and/or vegetables, skip Steps 2 and 3. Scrape off any lingering food remnants with a metal brush before coating the top grilling grate with cooking spray in Step 4.

Depending on how hot your briquets are, the cooking times may vary. The zucchini bread is done when it’s toasted and you can see faint grill marks.
