Creamy Jalapeno Roll-Ups

I originally found this recipe on Pinterest, a pin made from My Homemade Life,  and made them for Becca and Gabe’s High School Graduation Open House.  I made double the recipe and these were the first things gone!

Well over the Holidays we had a full house with all the kids coming home and I made these again as snack items for them.  And once again, they disappeared!

These Jalapeno Roll-Ups are so much easier than making jalapeno poppers and much tastier!  We did try a few alterations to the recipe.  While the roll-ups are great, they are kind of large for an appetizer, so we tried a few different ways of making these so they would be more “bite” sized.


1 tube regular Crescent Rolls
1 (4 ounce) can Diced Jalapenos (you will actually only use half of this can)
3/4 (8 ounce) cube cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tbsp. sugar

Note:  The ingredients above make 32 little Crescent Poppers.  It’s easy for a grown man to shovel about 8 of these in his mouth without thinking about it.  So depending on who you’re having over, you might want to get another tube of Crescent Rolls and one more cube of cream cheese.  Don’t worry about the Jalapenos, you will have enough for a second batch with this one can.  Unless you want over the top spicy poppers.

Preheat oven 375 degrees.

Mix your cream cheese, jalapenos and sugar in a bowl.  Now I have found if you let the filling sit for an hour or more the flavors mix better.  Also be sure to taste test your filling in order to get the right “hotness” from it.  Add jalapenos as you see fit to taste.
