Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, break up a sleeve of graham crackers. You want to pulse them for a good two minutes to make sure there are no big crumbs. Get it to a flour consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the graham crackers, melted butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.
  3. Line two cupcake tins with cupcake cups.
  4. Fill each cup with a heaping tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture. Then, gently shake and bang the tins on the kitchen counter to settle any bubbles and even them out.
  5. Chill in the freezer.
  6. Make the caramel.
  7. In a small pot with tall sides add the sugar.
  8. Stand there and watch it for a couple minutes. Wait till the edges of the sugar start to melt.
  9. Swirl, don't stir the sugar.
  10. Let it go until it reaches an auburn color.
  11. Add the cubed butter. Stir.
  12. Spoon the liquid hot caramel over the peanut butter layer.
  13. Over a double boiler, which is just a bowl put over a small pot with simmering water, gently melt the chocolate.
  14. When it's melted, cover the cups and shake the tins one finally time to smooth the tops and get rid of any air bubbles. It'll also give the chocolate a shiny professional appearance.
  15. Store in the freezer or in the refrigerator.
  16. And as always, Chow!
