Introduction: The Best Peanut Prank Ever!

About: ♫ Basking in sunshine ☼, creating new dishes... growing zucchini and swimming with fishes. Rattlesnake hunting the desert in Spring; these are are a few of my favorites things. When the wind flies, when the...

This laugh-out-loud-FUNNY prank can be customized from "naughty-nice" to "downright evil". >:-D

All you need is a friendly get-together, a little pre-planning and "Innocent-looking Peanuts" to pull this off.

Be sure to keep an ample supply of napkins handy... and your camera, too! Just try not to get carried away!!! 

First you'll need to construct your Innocent-looking Peanuts:

Sort through the bag and look for peanuts with a crack along the side of the hull. Pry them apart gently and eat the peanuts. (If they're being difficult to pry apart, use a knife.)

Fill the peanut about halfway with whatever you have that is sticky and edible. (That means NON-POISONOUS!)

Be sure to apply a small amount of the sticky stuff to the rim of the shell so it will hold together. (Marshmallow cream works great and so does peanut butter and/or jelly.)

You can also use Elmer's white glue. It's non-toxic and dries clear!

Stick the peanut shell halves together... get your camera ready... and serve to your unsuspecting victims! >;-D

    Cool prank, voted and gave you 5.

    Some pistachio shells are open enough to pull the nut out and replace it with a
    jelly-bean ( Grand kids love it ).

    I would eat the shell more often, if it didn't give me splinters in my gums.

    Maybe it's the brand of peanuts... or maybe you're just sensitive?

    Bummer! ;-(

    I always eat peanuts with the shells on -- it's great capital-F Fiber, salty and filling. It's how my dad always did it so it's how I always do it.

    You are right in saying there's lots of fibre in the shell but the nut is fibre anyway.

    I got a little puzzled about this as I am amongst the people who shell their peanuts before eating them. I'm English but my wife is from Atlanta and after asking her about this she personally doesn't know anyone in the US that eats peanuts without taking them out of the shell.

     ....... but I think I may have a solution to this, Bajablue, you say your hubby sucks the salt off the peanuts before eating them, this gave me a clue to where the confusion lies, you see I've never seen a peanut in it's shell with a salted coating, it's usually dirt as they grow on the ground. So after mulling this info over I came to the conclusion that Bajablue meant the husk around the nut had the salt on it and not the outer shell. The husk is the fine skin usually a golden brownish shade and is sometimes left on the peanuts after they are shelled and then salted and put in a packet and sold as salted peanuts. I really can't see any other answer to this.

    ..... I hope this has maybe thrown a little light on the situation and my comments are constructive and helpful. This is my first posting, I hope it passes the 'be nice' policy :) :) If not I'm sorry, please don't ban me, I've just paid £26 on a pro membership tonight, I promise to 'be nicer' in future :) :) :)
