Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch springform pan generously with cooking spray or line with a parchment circle.
Add the chocolate cookies into a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add the melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are moist. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pie plate. Bake until set, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let the crust cool on a wire rack.
Whisk together the coffee liqueur, Irish cream liqueur, and vodka. Set aside.
Mix the instant coffee and the hot water together until dissolved. Set aside.
In a pan over medium heat, add the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Heat until chocolate is fully melted and smooth, stirring frequently. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the mudslide cocktail blend.
Pour 1 cup of hot fudge over the top of the cookie crust. Sprinkle with crushed peanuts.
Set the ice cream out at room temperature for 5 -10 minutes. Scoop out the ice cream into a blender. Add 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of the mudslide cocktail blend and the instant coffee blend. Cover and process in blender until it forms a very thick milkshake. Immediately pour it over the cooled crust and transfer the pie to the freezer for 15 minutes.
With an electric mixer, beat the cream and sugar together to form whipped cream, about 5-7 minutes. Cover ice cream with whipped cream (I used a pastry bag and a large star tip), if you do not have these items, use a gallon zip-top bag and snip off one corner to form a piping bag or spoon on top.
Garnish the pie with some reserved chocolate chips and crushed peanuts. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and return it to the freezer. Freeze until set, at least 6 hours or overnight.
Just before serving, drizzle with some extra hot fudge.
If coffee flavored ice cream is sold in your area, you may substitute that for the vanilla ice cream and omit the instant coffee and water. Coffee ice cream is a regional ice cream flavor and is not available in all areas. Here, we've made our own coffee ice cream using vanilla ice cream and instant coffee granules.
