You ever have one of those friends, the prankster?
My buddy at work thought he was the reigning prankster, until I shut him down with a mustard-filled Reese's cup.

In this tutorial I'll recreate the process I used in its wretched creation.

You will need:
A Reese's Peanut Butter Cup [preferably individually wrapped]
Small knife for incising.
A food product that completely contrasts peanut butter and chocolate. [I used Feta cheese]
Super glue

Optional:
Ice Pack
Surgical Gloves or similar glove.

[Having to state the obvious: don't give this 'modified' candy to anyone who may have food allergies, intolerances to certain foods, etc]

Step 1: Prep the Patient


1: Prep the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup by carefully removing the packaging at the seems.

Notes:
When I first did this prank the Reese's cup was from the prankee's own bag of individually wrapped chocolates. I unfortunately couldn't obtain an individually wrapped one without purchasing an entire bag. I enjoy them too much to trust myself with a 1/4 pound worth. But if you have an individually wrapped chocolate, the packaging is much easier to remove without damaging it than the twin pack.

Step 2: Prep the Patient


2: Carefully remove the chocolate from the fluted cup. Place chocolate upside-down; base up.

Notes:
I used a knife to peel back the liner.
Once out I placed the chocolate on an ice-pack while I worked on it; to keep it from collapsing, melting, leaving prints, etc. This is where the surgical gloves will come in handy.

Step 3: The Procedure


3: Make a circular incision centered on and half the radius of the base, just breaking through the chocolate.

Notes:
Don't go too deep. I etched through the chocolate first 'cause it was somewhat hard from being on the icepack. Once through the chocolate you can remove the center cut.

Step 4: Extraction


4: Remove the incised section of chocolate and extract peanut butter.

Notes:
I was really tempted to eat the SOB by this point.

Step 5: Transplant


5: Fill with vomitous, edible substance.

Notes:
My original prank Reese's contained mustard, from a packet. I was at work, at my desk, so I went with what I had. This time 'round I was home, with a wider selection. Found a nice garlic, herb feta. Yum, yum. The consistency was perfect.
Fill the hollowed cup with about as much feta as peanut butter that was removed.

Step 6: Close and Patch


6: Replace the plug and begin cosmetic repair.

Notes:
Because I poked through the top I used the second cup for the alogenic graft of chocolate to patch the hole. It's best to let the cup get to room temp. When the chocolate was soft enough I simply ran my index finger around the base incision, smearing the chocolate until it was smooth enough to be overlooked. I did the same for the top repair.

Step 7: Re-wrap


I don't really want to give this nasty thing to anyone, so I dissected the chocolate for a better view.
If you plan on actually giving it to someone, put the Reese's back in the fluted cup then into the original packaging. A few strategic dabs of super glue in the seems, let it dry and wait for the fun.

And actually, the dog had been watching me the whole time so I gave the two halves to him. I'm pretty certain he didn't taste a thing.

Hope you get as good a laugh as I had if you try this on a 'friend'.
I'd love to try this project myself, but I'm a bit hesitant about using superglue in a food product. Are you sure it's non-toxic?
Ack! Chocolate is dangerous for dogs... and the darker the chocolate, the more deadly.<br><br>Source: http://www.talktothevet.com/ARTICLES/DOGS/chocolatetoxic.HTM<br><br>Some other things that are dangerous for dogs: <br>http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+1659&amp;aid=1030<br><br>This is a great prank idea, I just don't want anyone's dog to get sick or worse. Hopefully your dog didn't feel any ill effects!
My collie dog lived to be 16 and ate chocolate fairly regularly [often stolen].Presumably if she had abstained she would be alive today,aged 37.
My previous dog ate about half a bar of 70% cocoa chocolate when she was 3 or so. She lived to be 12. She also regularly ate most of the easter eggs.
I'm glad your dog survived. Would you feel as comfortable if someone else's dog died because you said it was safe?<br><br>Note, I didn't say &quot;if you feed your dog a Reese's Cup, it will die screaming.&quot; I said that chocolate is dangerous for dogs, and provided a trustworthy source for the information. Just because your dog didn't die, doesn't mean others won't.
Wow. I seriously didn't expect to get a coherent reply from an Internet user. I should have properly read your comment before being all, 'ANECTODAL EVIDENCE!'<br>Thank you
You're welcome! Thanks for the reasonable response, I appreciate it! :D

for the love of god dont do this to kids trick-or-treating. <br><br>will most likely get arrested and/or shot by some kid's parents. two years ago some guy was handing out reeses with razor blades in them to kids.
I'm sure the author wasn't suggesting anyone hand these out to children. :) Aside from scaring a community, it'd take way too much time.<br><br>Although a handful of the &quot;razor blades or needles in the candy&quot; reports from the past few decades are true, the vast majority of them have fortunately turned out to be hoaxes, or pranks by kids who think it's funny to put a pin in a candy bar, show it to mom or dad, and freak them out.<br><br>Happy Halloween!
Nicely done! And bonus points for usage of <i>allogenic graft</i>.
Thank you! <br>And I was trying to keep with a medical theme. Awesome that my attempts at humor are appreciated! Thanks.
