Preheat the oven to 375F
Combine the graham crackers crumbs, chocolate cookie crumbs, butter, and 4 tbsp of the sugar in a medium bowl. Stir thoroughly to combine. Press the mixture firmly into a 9 inch pie pan and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, let the crust cool completely, then wrap it with plastic wrap and place the pan in the freezer for at least 1 hour and for up to 2 weeks. Allow the crust to come to room temperature before filling.
Combine the cream cheese, confectioner's sugar and milk in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth, about 1 minute on medium speed. Add the melted chocolate and the peanut butter and continue to blend for another minute on medium speed. Combine the cream with the remaining sugar in another medium bowl. Beat with a whisk or electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate and peanut butter mixture until thoroughly incorporated and smooth. Pout the filling into the pie crust. Smooth the top of the pie with a spatula, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving
To serve, use a hot wet knife to slice the pie into 8 portions. Garnish with peanuts and drizzle with the Rich Chocolate Sauce is desired.
