How to store mummy poppers

These wrapped jalapeño poppers can be prepped in advance. However, you’ll want to wait to add the candy eyes until it’s closer to serving time.

​You can fully make them, allow to cool to room temperature, and then store in an airtight container.

​When you’re ready to reheat and serve, warm in a 300 degree oven until the filling is warmed through, then add the eyes on before plating!
