Fill each jalapeno half with cheese curds. Then, divide the pretzel dough into 24 portions (eight from each dough ball). Roll each portion into a thin rope, about 14 inches long. Beginning at one end of the jalapeno, wrap the dough around, tucking the ends in, leaving a space for the eyes. Brush with egg mixture and place on baking sheet.

Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press the eyes into the cheese where the opening is. Serve hot.

**You may simply wrap cocktail wieners with the dough as well, then add the eyes, ‘glued’ on with a bit of cheese, after removing from the oven.
