If you live in one of the 15 or so Western states served by Jack in the Box, you have no doubt cracked a gut from the hilarious TV ads produced by this popular hamburger chain. In the spots a suit-wearing Jack runs the company, even though he's got a giant bulbous antenna ball for a head with a smiley-face painted on it. He has a private jet, plays golf, even has kids with mini antenna-ball heads.
Jack also has a featured shake flavor that, it turns out, is very easy to make at home with a blender, ice cream, milk, and a handful of Oreo cookies. Sure the drive-thru is convenient and easy. But if you don't feel like going out, now you can enjoy this clone at home from the first fast food chain in the country to use a drive-thru window way back when.

1. Combine the ice cream and milk in a blender and mix on low speed until smooth. Stir the shake with a spoon to mix, if necessary.
2. Break Oreo cookies while adding them to the blender. Mix on low speed for 5 to 10 seconds or until the cookies are mostly pureed into the shake, but a few larger pieces remain. Stir with a spoon if necessary to help mix the cookies in.
3. Pour the shake into two 12-ounce glasses.
