Preheat oven to 350ᴼF.
Heat chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Once the morsels are melted, add the Oreo crumbs to the chocolate. Place ¾ the mixture in the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Make sure it is spread evenly. Set aside.
Using a KitchenAid (or handmixer), beat the cheese until fluffy. Add in milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix for about 5 minutes.
