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


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

Recipe Tip

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

Kindred Creamery Ghost Pepper Colby Jack is a blend of mild colby jack cheese with ghost peppers for extra-spicy heat. If the cheese it too spicy, swap in a mellower pepper jack or salsa jack cheese instead.
