Mississippi Mud Ice Cream Pie

This is a great recipe because you can do so many things with it. Your imagination is the limit. It's make ahead, easy to do, what more do you want?

1 chocolate cookie crust (Make it or buy it)

3/4 pkg Nabisco chocolate wafers (They're always with ice cream cones and such), ground into crumbs
1/2 stick butter, melted
Mix together in an 9" pie plate and press to form a crust

1/2 gallon of coffee ice cream
1 cup heavy cream, whipped (optional, the filling will freeze harder without it)
1/4 cup Kahlua
1 can Hershey's chocolate sauce
1 jar of caramel sauce
Chocolate chips, nuts, or candy

Beat (using cold beaters in a cold bowl) whipping cream to soft peaks Let ice cream soften and add Kahlua. Fold whipping cream into ice cream. Layer in crust with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, nuts, or candy. Freeze until hard about 2 hours. Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving and slice while still frozen.

For Peanut Butter Pie: Beat about 1 cup of creamy peanut butter into vanilla ice cream. Use Frangelico or Amaretto liquor. I think it would also be fantastic to fold in chopped up Reese's peanut butter cups.
