Beyond seductive chocolate and tempting toffee... beyond provocative peanut butter and beguiling bananas... way beyond.  

Chunky Monkey Squares are more than just cookies.  They're an addictive, passionate and lustful expression of desirous cookie love... if there is such a thing. ;-)

Step 1: Ingredient Overview and Tools:

Picture of Ingredient Overview and Tools:
There are really only 2 components in this cookie recipe:  The crust and the topping(s).

This list may seem a tad lengthy, but when you're going beyond, the "journey" is always a little longer. You probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard and frig anyway. ;-) 

I've segregated the ingredients for each component /topping.  It's helpful to measure out and organize the ingredients ahead of time so you're focused on the preparation.  

Cookie Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups crushed chocolate cookies- any variety (I used a combination of chocolate wafers/oreo cookies and pulsed them in my blender)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2  teaspoons banana extract (may substitute w/ 1tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 cup melted butter (depending on the type of cookies you use)
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips- not pictured

Peanut Butter Topping:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin Coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
Homemade Toffee bits:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 pinch sea salt
3-4 medium bananas- barely ripe

Chocolate Drizzle:
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips- may substitute semi-sweet or milk chocolate
  • 3-4 Tablespoon extra virgin Coconut oil
  • 1 pinch sea salt
Garnish: Sea salt- optional

Tools:
  • 9 x 13" baking pan 
  • 2 ziplock baggies- quart size
  • Sifter
  • metal spatula
  • rubber spatula
  • Heavy medium sauce pan
  • Candy thermometer
  • silpat mat or parchment paper
  • wooden spoon
  • assorted bowls
