To make the Oreo crust:
For the flourless chocolate cake:
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip 6 egg yolks with brown sugar on medium-high speed until mixture is pale and fluffy and has nearly doubled in volume, about 5 minutes.
In a clean stand mixer bowl (you may have to transfer egg yolk/chocolate mixture to an alternate mixing bowl and clean out/dry well stand mixer bowl if you only have one like me), whip egg whites until foamy, then gradually increase speed to high, while slowly adding in 1/2 cup granulated sugar and beat until soft peaks form.
For the chocolate pudding:
Allow mixture to boil for 30 seconds then remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Add butter, chocolate chips and vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste because I ran out of vanilla) and stir until combined (I pressed mine through a fine strainer but that's optional).
Allow to rest at room temperature 15 minutes, then cover with plastic wrap pressing directly against the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Chill in refrigerator at least 3 hours or overnight.
