Project Police Negotiating Candy

Originally published December 1997

As you know, the best defense that a homebuilder has against a visit by the Project Police is a good supply of high-fructose snacks. With that in mind, the following recipe is provided to you in preparation for the Project Police holiday raids visits.

Fear not! This recipe has been successfully accomplished by kindergarteners with minimal adult supervision, so it should be doable by first-time homebuilders with minimal spousal support. No pneumatic tools are required.

1-1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 18 oz. jar peanut butter
1 lb box confectioner's (powdered) sugar

Mix above ingredients together until smooth. Press into a 9"x13" pan and chill.

1 Large Hershey Bar or 6 normal size Hershey Bars (about 8.7 oz. worth)
1 tablespoon butter

Melt the above ingredients together. Spread over peanut butter mixture. Chill. Keep in a safe place while waiting for the Project Police.


Use of a welding torch is not recommended.


To properly melt, the chocolate must be disturbed. Don't yell at it, just stir it as it is being heated. Failure to stir while heating, such as continually heating in the microwave, will result in the chocolate burning in its original shape without melting. This usually leads to another trip to the grocery store.


This candy is designed to be extremely effective on Project Police officers, and is thus very rich. Even experienced Project Police officers will enjoy this candy in chunks measuring approximately 0.750" x 0.750". Don't start on too big of a chunk.

(Please note: This recipe was tested only on Project Police officers. No animals were harmed in the testing of this recipe)
