To make the crust:
Melt butter. Mix in crumbs. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9" pie plate. Bake @ 350F for 10 minutes. Cool.
Once crust has cooled fill with chocolate ice cream. Freeze until firm.
To make topping:
Put cocoa, butter, sugar, whipping cream & vanilla into a pan. Heat & stir over medium heat until it boils. Remove from heat. Cool for 10 minutes & then pour over ice cream. Return to freezer.
Whip cream. Add sugar & vanilla. Spread on top of pie. Garnish with shaved chocolate & almonds if desired. Serve.
NOTE: If you can't find coffee ice cream you can dissolve 2 tsp (10 ml) of instant coffee in 4 tsp (20 ml) hot water and mix into soft vanilla ice cream.
