Default Bass guitar through guitar amp for effects?

OK, so this one is for the guitarists/bassists out there:

I have recently bought myself an electric bass guitar, and an amp. As I am a die-hard Muse fan, I REALLY want to get some distortion on my bass guitar. But I don't have a pedal. Yet.

However, I do already have a Fender Mustang I guitar amplifier, with several effects built in.
I know that I can't play my bass directly through my guitar amp, but can I safely plug my bass guitar into the guitar amp and then run a cable from the headphone output, into my bass amp? Or will it blow up my guitar amp?

In my head this will work perfectly fine, but I'm not an experienced musician like some of you are.

Thanks for your help.
