Ingredients List


Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Colby-Monterey Jack, Cream Cheese or Pepper Jack can be used in this recipe.


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Line a 17 x 12-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes. Beat the cream cheese, colby jack and bacon in a large bowl. Pipe or spoon a heaping tablespoonful of cream cheese mixture into each pepper half.
  3. Unroll the crescent roll dough into a rectangle; place on parchment paper. (Press to seal perforations, if using crescent rolls.) Cut dough lengthwise into 24 strips, each about 1/4-inch thick. Wrap each jalapeño half with one strip, leaving space near the stem for eyes. Place 2 inches apart on prepared pan. Brush dough with egg wash. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
  4. Remove from the oven. Press 2 eyeballs onto each popper. Serve immediately. 

Recipe Tip

  • Avoid touching face when handling the jalapeno peppers. Consider wearing gloves, as oils may burn skin.
