I had chocolate chip cookies so I made the crust using the cookies. Also I never have enough crust so I had to make extra--14 oz crushed cookies and 1/2 cup of butter. I used vanilla ice cream with 1/2 sugar. I thought the chocolate layer was too much--maybe just drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrup. It was okay. Very easy to make. My friends enjoyed and asked me for the recipe.

I modified this slightly. I had two chocolate graham cracker crusts laying around, so I used that as the crust. I split a 1/2 gallon of vanilla bean frozen yogurt between the two crusts, then topped each with peanuts and 1/2 the sauce. It was pretty good, not sure how often I would make it though. Maybe this does need the full fat ice cream to make it work the best.
