Halloweeño Jalapeño Popper Mummies | The Hopeless Houswife

These little mummies will win over your heart and your stomach! They are just so darned cute you don’t want to eat them but trust me, once you have one you will be heading back for more! These little Halloweeño Jalapeño Popper Mummies are so easy to make, too. I always say you could wrap Crescent Roll dough on a shoe and it would taste good but the jalapeño popper is such a good compliment to the buttery, crispy Crescent Roll wrapping.They are a perfect addition to your Halloween appetizer spread or to bring to a Halloween party. These will disappear quickly so you might want to make two batches!

The most time consuming part is the wrapping of the mummies– but it really only takes abut 30 seconds for each one once you get going and get into a groove.

Yield: 20 Poppers

Halloweeño Jalapeño Poppers

Halloweeño Jalapeño Poppers


  • 10 jalapeño peppers, sliced in half lengthwise and pith/ seeds removed (use rubber gloves so your hands don't burn from the jalapeño). Leave the stem if you can on some or all of the halves.
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 ounces jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 scallion (green onion), finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls (I usePillsbury)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • candy eyeballs (can be purchased at Michael's or on Amazon)


  1. Preheat oven 400° F. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, jack cheese, scallion and salt until well blended.
  2. Roll out the crescent rolls and separate into 4 rectangles (not triangles) with a perforation in the middle of each. Press your fingers into the perforations to seal them. Using a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 long pieces lengthwise.
  3. Fill each jalepeño half with the cheese mixture. Wrap each jalapeño half with the dough, leaving a space for the eyes. Use two pieces of dough if necessary. Brush with egg mixture and place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press the eyes into the cheese where the opening is. Serve immediately.

  • Riley says:

    WOW– what a great picture!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these!

  • Carolyn Fine says:

    These were delicious. They actually didn’t take much time for me to wrap in the dough. The jalapeño stayed a little spicy but it wasn’t too much for the kids. What a cute idea! Love them 🙂

  • Jacquie L says:

    I need to make these asap! They are so wonderful to look at, I hope they taste as good as they look! So cute!

  • Anna DePinto says:

    can these be made ahead of time and baked later?

  • Katie says:

    These look amazing! Do you think adding some finely chopped bacon to the cream cheese mixture would be ok?

  • Cassy says:

    It’s gonna be a hot Halloween for us. Thanks for the recipe.

  • Can you use something besides jalaeno peppers? I have had throat cancer and cannot eat them. But these are so cute and look delicious. Thank you

  • Tammy says:

    has anyone tried olives or anything else for the eyes? thinking I would like to stay savory rather than add the sweet.

    • Erika Erika says:

      Well I state in the recipe to remove the eyeballs before eating. I also suggest a little cream cheese and black olive for the eyes if you don’t want to use the candy eyeballs but the candy is SO much cuter!

  • Liz says:

    They’re AWESOME. but I’ve a suggestion for the eyes. Instead of candy what about Green Olives or even the red Pimento from the olives. Also using pieces of black Olives for eyes. I’ve not made them, but candy & Jalapenos don’t go together. Better yet serves the eyes in a decorative bowl.

      Well I state in the recipe to remove the eyeballs before eating. I also suggest a little cream cheese and a piece of black olive if you don’t want to use the candy eyeballs but they are SO much cuter with the candy ones!

  • Dawn Isabelle says:

    These are the cutest things I have EVER seen! I am making these for sure this Halloween!!

    Do you think it will work if I use homemade pizza dough instead to wrap these little guys up?

    I am going to make these for our pot luck on Halloween. Also love your presentation, looks like a bowl from McKenzie- Childs. Beautiful!

    Great idea! Making these for a work potluck on Halloween.

  • Lottifish says:

    Do you use an 8oz package of the crescent rolls? Or will I need more?

  • Button says:

    I’m gonna try to make these tonight. Will let you know tomorrow.

  • Heather G says:

    I absolutely LOVE this idea. But I was wanting to take these to a party. After baking them would it be alright to pop them back in the oven for a couple minutes to bake rewarm them?

    • Erika Erika says:

      I have never done this but I think it would work! They won’t taste as good of course as the first bake but I think they will be good. Good luck!!

  • MessyScraper says:

    This is just right for the time!

    Thank you for this recipe, it’s exactly what I was looking for. I will be back to rate it after I prepare it.

  • Nat says:

    Thanks! These are easy and taste great. I took them to a brunch this morning.

  • Pat M says:

    These wer so darn cute and delicious. Brought then to an adult Halloween party and they were delish. I used black olives for the eyes, safer than plastic ones when adult beverages are involved.
    Will defineitly be making these again.

  • Amanda says:

    I made these for Halloween this year, and they were a hit! Absolutely delicious and cute as can be.

    I couldn’t find shredded jack cheese, so I substituted shredded pepperjack which just added an extra bit of kick. I also had leftover filling, which I added some extra cream cheese to and had a tasty dip. So much fun!

  • Moretta says:

    I made these for a Halloween party and people LOVED them.

  • Mary Ann says:

    These are the easiest and tastiest poppers. Hot, creamy goodness, doesn’t get better then that.

  • mohammad says:


  • Gemma says:

    Love these! I will definitely be taking them along to our works halloween party! Would you say they were best served warm?

  • Lisa says:

    Hi has anyone tried half baking these and freezing? I have a huge Halloween party and can’t do it all day of.

  • Cecilia says:

    I would love to take this to a grown up halloween party. Can i make them early in the day. Take to party, about 4 hrs later. Can it be served room temperature. Thnks

    • Kristen says:

      I’m in this exact same scenario- I’m unsure if the crescent rolls will be good on standby until lunch— been looking for advice since I can’t serve immediately

  • Rebecca says:

    Adoreable recipe!

  • bILL fARMER says:
