Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

1 (18 ounce) package small chocolate chip cookies
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup hot fudge topping
2 quarts vanilla ice cream
2 cups mini chocolate chips
1 cup whipped cream
12 cherries

Crush half the cookies (about 20) to make crumbs. Combine crumbs with melted butter and press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan or pie plate. Stand remaining cookies around edge of pan. Spread 3/4 cup fudge topping over crust. Freeze 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, soften 1 quart of ice cream in microwave or on countertop. Mix softened ice cream and mini chocolate chips. After crust has chilled, spread softened ice cream over fudge layer. Freeze 30 minutes.
Scoop remaining quart of ice cream into balls and arrange over spread ice cream layer. Freeze until firm, 4 hours or overnight. To serve, garnish with remainder of fudge topping, whipped cream and cherries.
