Preheat oven to 350°.
In a medium bowl, stir together wafer crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter until well combined. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
Bake for 8 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate morsels onto hot crust; let stand for 2 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly onto crust.
In a small bowl, beat heavy cream with a mixer at medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating until stiff peaks form; refrigerate.
