Chop cooled cookies into small pieces. In a small bowl, combine walnuts, butter and brown sugar. Pour into a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes; stir well. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
In a medium heavy-duty saucepan, combine evapor-ated milk, morsels, confectioners' sugar, baking bar and butter. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool completely.
To assemble, wrap outside of a 9 or 10 inch springform pan with foil. Spread one-third of crumbled cookies on the bottom of pan. Top with half of the ice cream and half of the chocolate sauce. Combine remaining crumbled cookies and walnut mixture in a medium bowl. Spread half of the cookie-walnut mixture over chocolate sauce. Reserve 2 tablespoons chocolate sauce.
Top cookie-walnut mixture in pan with remaining ice cream, chocolate sauce and cookie-walnut mixture.
