Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder. Transfer to a bowl and stir in sugar. Pour the butter over the mixture and mix until well combined.
Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Put the crust in the refrigerator.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave or double boiler. Stir in corn syrup. Spread the chocolate in a thin layer on the bottom of the chilled pie crust. Return the crust to the refrigerator.
Using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla, and brown sugar on medium speed until well combined and smooth. Set aside.
In another bowl, use the mixer to whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture until uniform in color.
Pour the mixture into the prepared crust and freeze for at least 4 hours. Once frozen, the pie can be covered with aluminum foil and kept in the freezer for up to 3 days.
Place both chocolates in a heat-proof bowl. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in corn syrup. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate. Allow to sit for 2 minutes. Starting in the center and working out to the edges, whisk the chocolate mixture in a circle until smooth.
Spoon onto pieces of pie before serving.
After sauce is cooled to room temperature, it can be covered tightly and kept in the refrigerator for 3 days. Rewarm sauce in microwave on medium heat for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until warm.
