8-10 large Jalapeños
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl add cream cheese, pepper jack cheese and bacon and mix until combined. Slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise and seed and core them. Spoon cream cheese mixture into jalapeno halves. Pinch two crescents together to form a rectangle. With a knife or pizza cutter slice each rectangle into 10 thin strips. Wrap 2-3 strips around stuffed jalapeños. Making sure to leave some space for the eyes. Bake 12-14 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes. Place the candy eyes onto the jalapeños.
