Ingredient List
For the Mummies:
  • 10 medium jalapeños (about 4 inches long), sliced in half lengthwise, with seeds and ribs removed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces finely shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 20 slices cooked bacon
  • 12-ounce tube refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 40 small candy eyeballs or sliced olives
To make the mummies
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper.

  • Spoon the cheese mixture evenly into the 20 jalapeño halves. 

  • Unroll the crescent rolls. Divide into 4 rectangles, pressing together the seam of two triangles. Using a pizza cutter, slice each rectangle lengthwise into 10 strips.

  • Wrap each stuffed jalapeño first with 1 slice of cooked bacon and then with 2 strips of dough. Try to leave a space where the eyes will be. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

  • Remove from the oven and carefully place candy eyeballs (or olives) on each mummy.

  • Cool slightly and serve warm.
