Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cupcakes

I made these for our preggo friend who invited us to dinner the other night.  She requested chocolate cupcakes and of course I had to give her what she wanted.  All that you need is a box of devil's food cake, a cup of shredded zucchini and a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Follow the directions on the cake mix, but add slightly less oil than you normally would.  Once all is properly mixed, stir in the zucchini and chocolate chips.  Bake according to the directions on the box.  I used this vanilla buttercream recipe, it doesn't compare to store bought icing and makes such a difference.  What you are left with is a cupcake that is super moist, lower in fat and higher in fiber.  I may or may not have eaten at least 5 over the weekend ; )
