These haunted Jalapeño Poppers are shaped to look like mummies! It's a super cute recipe to get everyone excited for Halloween and is easy to make!
Things You'll Need:
4 oz of cream cheese (softened)
4 oz pepper jack cheese (grated)
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of onion powder
Pinch of Kosher salt and pepper
Googly eyes (2 per popper)
2 cans of refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 egg (or egg wash)
How To Make:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and ribs.
In a small bowl mix the cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper.
Use a food processor to mix everything (or by hand).
Fill the jalapeño pepper halves with the cheese mixture. Note: don't overfill or the cheese will ooze out while baking.
Unroll the crescent roll dough leaving the triangles together and pinching the perforations together. Cut thin strips (about 1/2 inch wide) of dough and wrap one or two pieces around each pepper half. Leave a space at the top open to insert the googly eyes when they are done.
Make an egg wash by combining the egg and about one tablespoon of water. Mix well.
Place the mummies on your baking sheet, and brush a thin layer of egg wash on each one.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the mummies are golden brown.
Once cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and place the candy googly eyes in the melted cheese.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
