- 10 jalapeños, halved lengthwise, seeds and pit removed (use rubber gloves to prevent hand burn from the jalapeños). If you can, leave the stem on some or all of the halves.
- 250 grams room temperature cream cheese
- 250 grams of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 sliced scallion (green onion)
- 1/2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 package of chilled crescent rolls
- 2 beaten eggs,
- Candy eyeballs
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Using parchment paper or nonstick foil, line a large baking sheet with a rim.
- Combine cream cheese, cheddar, scallions, and salt in a mixing bowl. Scoop into a plastic bag that can be sealed and cut off one corner.
- Split the jalapeños and pipe the cheese mixture into the pepper halves.
- The crescent rolls should be rolled out and divided into 4 rectangles, each with a perforation in the middle. To seal the perforations, press your fingers into them. Cut each rectangle into 10 lengthwise pieces using a pizza cutter.
- For a mummy-like appearance, wrap two strips around each filled jalapeño half.
- Place the halves on the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Pull the poppers out of the oven, then press the eyeballs into the cheese where the opening is.
- Transfer to a platter and serve your spooky Halloween appetizers warm or at room temperature.
