disappearing chocolate zucchini bread

Okay, so I've made this bread twice now, and both times I've managed to get pictures of it in the pan, but have had zero luck snapping a shot of a slice. You may wonder why, but after you taste it you'll completely understand. Is this the best bread I've ever had? Why, yes, I think it is! Seriously, if you like chocolate at all you are going to just be on cloud 9 the instant it touches your taste buds. And then, when you close your mouth and start to chew, your eyes are going to get really big and then kind of roll into the back of your head as that delicious yummy noise (you know the one, its kind of a moan/sigh) just escapes your mouth, past all the chocolaty goodness that is this bread. The term "eat your heart out" was made for foods like this! My suggestion: only let it cool a few minutes; and have a big glass of milk on hand. Your life just got a whole loaf of chocolate zucchini HEAVEN better. Don't thank me, just enjoy.
