Pour the chocolate syrup into a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave, stopping to stir every 30 seconds, until hot, about 2 minutes on high. Do not allow it to boil.
Stir the peanut butter into the warmed chocolate until smooth.
Allow the chocolate/peanut butter mixture to cool to room temperature.
Line the bottom of a 9x13-inch dish with a layer of ice cream sandwiches.
Spread 1/2 of the whipped topping over the sandwiches in an even layer.
Spoon 1/2 of the chocolate mixture over the whipped topping layer, spreading it into an even layer.
Top the whipped topping layer with 1/2 of the peanuts.
Repeat the layers once.
Freeze the layered mixture until firm, for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
Cut the frozen layered mixture into squares.
