These mummies are sure to be the hit at your next gathering by turning a few ordinary ingredients into something extraordinary, spooky and yummy! These super cute mummies are jalapeño peppers stuffed with a flavored cream cheese, cheddar cheese and bacon. They are individually wrapped in store bought crescent roll dough and baked until golden brown and the cheese is warm and melted.
10 Jalapeño Peppers
1 Cup Jalapeño flavored Cream Cheese
1 Cup Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 Cup Bacon, chopped (about 5 strips)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1 pkg. Crescent Roll dough
Candy eyes (find at Walmart or Target)
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Half the jalapeños lengthwise with a small sharp knife and remove the ribs and seeds.
Combine the cream cheese, cheddar jack, bacon, garlic powder, and paprika in a small bowl.
Fill the center of a jalapeño with the cream cheese mixture (1-2 tbsp of mix per jalapeño half, depending on the size of the pepper). Repeat with the remaining peppers.
Unroll the crescent dough and pinch the seams together so you have one large sheet of dough. Cut it into 20 equal size strips.
Wrap one strip of crescent dough around each jalapeño, leaving enough space to insert the eyes once they’re baked.
Place the poppers on the center rack in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the poppers are golden brown.
Insert two candy eyes into the poppers— make sure to do this when they’re still hot or they won’t stick.
Makes 20 poppers
