Mummies are a classic Halloween costume. They’re plenty creepy and it’s easy to dress up as a mummy using things you have around the house. And just like their monstrous inspiration, these Cheetos® Mummies are scary easy to cook up at home. All you need are some hotdogs, pie crust, butter, and of course Flamin’ Hot® Cheetos® and a bag of Simply Cheetos® Puffs White Cheddar Jalapeño. Watch the Matty Matheson-hosted video up top and then scroll down to read Complex’s detailed recipe. You’ll be wolfing down these candy-eyed crunchers in no time. Just make sure you save one for Chester. 


Cheetos® Mummies

Yield: 8 mummies 


1 Can Refrigerated Crescent Rolls

1 8.5 Ounce Bag Simply Cheetos® Puffs White Cheddar Jalapeño

1 8.5 Ounce Bag Cheetos® Flamin’ Hot® Crunchy 

8 Hot Dogs

2 Eggs

Sriracha Hot Sauce

Candy Eyes


Food Processor

Sheet Pan

Parchment Paper


Cutting Board


Pastry brush


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Blitz up one 8.5 ounce bag each Simply Cheetos® Puffs White Cheddar Jalapeño and Cheetos® Flamin’ Hot® Crunchy in food processor and set aside in separate shallow bowls. 

On cutting board, roll out dough and press together to create a solid rectangle and cut into thin strips. 

In bowl, beat up eggs to create egg wash, brush lightly on top and toss strips into your crushed Cheetos® of choice. 

Line sheet pan with parchment paper, wrap hot dogs up haphazardly in strips of crushed Cheetos®-coated dough to create your mummies. 

Place on sheet pan and rearrange dough strips to leave space for your mummies’ eyes. 

Bake for 10-15 minutes until puffed and golden. Move to serving dish and using Sriracha hot sauce (or ketchup if you don't like heat) adhere candy eyes and create some bloody wounds.
