Jalapeno Popper Mummies

These little guys are as cute as they are delicious. They aren’t as difficult as you might think, but do allow for about 30 minutes of prep time, not including baking time.

How to Make

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, jack cheese, scallion, and salt until well blended.

2. Roll out the crescent rolls and fashion them into four rectangles (not triangles) with the perforation running diagonally through the middle of each. Seal the perforation by pinching with your fingers. Using a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 long pieces lengthwise.

3. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese mixture. Wrap jalapenos unevenly with the dough to make it look like cloth strips, leaving a space for the eyes (do not put eyes on until done baking). Brush with the beaten egg mixture.

4. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes, or until partly golden brown. Remove from oven and add eyes. Serve immediately for best taste.
