Crescent roll mummies with nutella and banana

Nutella & Banana Crescent Roll Mummies for Halloween!

These tasty crescent roll mummies are a fun dessert idea for Halloween. They are super easy to put together and can be made in advance too! It is more fun for all when the Halloween recipe is good and simple! 😉

All you need is a can of refrigerated Pillsbury crescent dough, Nutella, a few bananas, and some sort of edible eyeballs. Easy enough, right?

Preparing the Ingredients

You can use candy eyes, M&M’s, chocolate chips, or create your own edible eyes with frosting. Whatever you prefer! The powdered sugar and milk are a simple glaze to drizzle on at the end (if desired).

The prep for these pastries is really easy, thanks to the Pillsbury dough. If your store carries the Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet, that is an even better option!

For ease and convenience, I roll out the dough on a silicone baking mat. Then all I have to do when the mummies are ready to bake is transfer the mat (with the mummies still on it) to a baking sheet.

Rolling the Banana Mummies

Once you’ve got the Nutella and the banana halves in the center of each dough piece, you are ready to start mummifying!

It works well to start with the very top and the very bottom strips on each side of the banana. Pull those strips down and up along the sides of the banana (as seen on the top-center mummy in the photo above).

Then take the next top strips and criss-cross them over the very top of the banana for the “headpiece.” The next top strips criss-cross below a gap for the eyes (as seen on the bottom-center mummy in the photo above). Finish crisscrossing the dough all the way down.

Serving Tips

Once your Halloween mummies are baked and cooled, drizzle on the simple glaze. Then just add some eyes before serving!

These would be perfect to bring to a classroom Halloween party. Speaking of parties, try some of these fun Halloween activities as well! Enjoy this cute and simple treat!

Nutella Crescent Roll Mummies Recipe for Halloween

5 / 5 (2 reviews)
Prep Time: 8 mins | Cook Time: 12-15 mins
Yield: 6 mummies | Serves: 6 servings


  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent dough or seamless sheet
  • about 12 tablespoons Nutella
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 12 candy eyes


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pinch together seams of the crescent dough (if needed) and roll out to about 11 x 8 inches. Cut the dough into 6 equal squares. Lightly score each square into 3 equal vertical columns (without cutting through the dough). Cut horizontal strips, about 1/4 inch wide, down each side section of each square.
  3. Spoon a couple of tablespoons of Nutella down the middle sections, leaving about 1/2 inch on both the top and bottom.
  4. Slice the bananas in half lengthwise and width-wise. Then place banana slices on top of the Nutella.
  5. Bring the very top strips of dough down along the sides of the banana, and the very bottom strips up along the sides. Then take the next top strips and cross them over the top of the banana to form the "headpiece." Leaving a gap for the eyes, cross the next top strips over. Continue criss-crossing the dough strips over the banana until finished.
  6. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool to room temperature.
  7. Mix powdered sugar with enough milk to form a glaze and then drizzle it over the mummies. Let it dry to the touch, add eyes, and then serve.
