My Special Hot Chocolate

Start with your favorite hot chocolate mix or a real good one quality one. I prefer Stephens Mint Truffle, but any favor will work. You have the water real hot when mix it, then add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. It makes it so creamy. 

I use this is Letting Love Win and in Past to Die For 
I imagine it will probably appear more in the future.

Zucchini Brownies are in a book I haven't released yet, Survive the Night. But, since I have a plant going bonkers on producing, and I have been making them a lot lately, I decided to share the recipe now. They are also my favorite brownie. Much better than you're thinking.

Zucchini Brownies
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
8 Tbsp cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 cups peeled, grated zucchini
3 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup oil
nuts optional (I don't use because I share and too many people with allergies to them.)
Combine all the dry ingredients, stir in zucchini, coating it thoroughly. Add oil and vanilla. Mix well, spread in pan. Bake at 350 degrees. 20-24 minutes for jelly roll pan, 30-35 minutes for 9 x 13 pan. Good with Ice cream or on their own. Extremely moist. Hope you enjoy.

The first I wanted to give you is one of my top favorites. I have used it in to of my book. Letting Love Win, my first book out, so fitting my first recipe and Past to Die For. I hope all enjoy.
