Spoon two large scoops of ice cream into each of four dessert bowls. Divide the chopped peanuts between the bowls; then sprinkle each with some cookie crumbs, drizzle with some caramel sauce, and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve.
Cookies 'n' Cream Crumbs:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the sandwich cookies to a food processor and pulse to coarse crumbs. Spread the crumbs out evenly on a baking sheet and drizzle with the melted butter. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Use crumbs as an ice cream topping, for crunch.
