Directions:
Sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients except the vanilla in a 1 quart saucepan; heat to boiling. Be careful so it doesn't burn. Lower heat and boil gently for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool slightly and stir in vanilla. Cool completely.
Crush cookies in the food processor or blender; toss with melted butter. Press into a 9" x 13" pan. Freeze. Cut the block of ice cream to fit into the pan in about 1 1/2" thick rectangular slices. (Fit it together like a puzzle and smooth over all.)
Top with the peanuts. Pour completely cooled chocolate sauce over peanuts and ice cream and return to the freezer. When firm cut into squares to serve.

Personal Notes:
This has become my standard "feed a crowd" recipe. (I usually read a magazine while I am stirring the chocolate for 8 minutes . . . or chat with a family member!)
