Bountiful Hot Fudge Sundae Pie

I've made this pie several times over the past twenty years and everyone always raves about it. It's especially good in the hot summer months after a BBQ or cookout. It's originally from an August 1981 issue of Bon Appetit magazine in a feature entitled "Cool Desserts". I've used both the Oreo crumbs in the box or the sleeve of chocolate wafer cookies by Nabisco and crush them in my processor
