Crush cookies by processing until very fine in a food processor or Ninja (Ninja is better). If you don't have these appliances, place cookies in a plastic zipper-seal bag and use a rolling pin to crush. It will take about 30 cookies to make 3 cups of crumbs.

Place crumbs in a bowl and drizzle melted butter over them. Mix until all cookies are coated with butter.

Place crumbs in a 11 x 7-inch rectangular pan (you can use 9 x 9-inch--freezing time will be extended though. I used 11 x 7). Distribute crumbs evenly in the pan and press down to form a crust. Set aside.

In a large bowl, with electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and the heavy cream until well blended. Add the whipped topping and beat until very well blended.

Turn peanut butter mixture into pan with crumbs. Even out the mixture across the pan.

Place in freezer and allow to freeze at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. The smaller pan would require 5-6 hours freezing.

Remove from freezer and allow dessert to sit for 10 minutes. Cut into squares. Top with additional whipped topping, chopped peanut & caramel candy bars and chocolate ganache if desired. For the ganache, microwave 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 2 tbs heavy cream for 30 seconds. Stir until no lumps remain. For thinner ganache, add a bit more cream.
