  • Combine cream cheese and Cheddar cheese in a bowl and season filling with salt and pepper. Spoon filling into jalapeno halves.

  • Roll out crescent dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into thin strips using a pizza cutter or a small knife. Wrap stuffed jalapenos with dough strips, leaving a small space unwrapped where the eyes will go.

  • Combine egg and milk in a bowl. Add flour to another bowl and season with salt and pepper. Dip stuffed jalapenos first in the egg mixture, then roll in the flour. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until dough is lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and stick candy eyeballs in melted cheese.

Cook's Note:

If you like, you can also deep-fry them but I prefer them baked.

These were great!!! I did add some garlic powder green onions and extra crispy bacon bits to the cheese filling which put these over the top! I also didn't scoop all of the veins out of the jalapenos to retain some spice. Made them three times for three separate parties and they were eaten at a rapid clip. Will certainly remember this recipe! Read More

I omitted the crescent rolls. I added Cayenne Powder because my Darling Husband says these as the recipe is written are not HOT enough. Also,... 15 minutes is adequate time for these Jalapeno Poppers to be baked for. Read More

I did add cooked chorizo to the cream cheese cheddar mixture. Took to an office lunch which started at 11. All gone by 11:30. Candy eyes were weird to me. Might try cream cheese drop w/ caraway etc seed. Or tiny black olive bits. Read More
