Welcome to the club mama, the butter was the nail in the coffin for me too, HAHAHA!!
Just a tip, make sure the heavy cream is cold when you start, and keep it cold. My cheapo blender couldn't do it without the motor overheating, then heating the cream, preventing the milk from splitting. I searched all over the net trying to figure out what the heck was wrong, but there's some contradicting advice out there.
Also, with the graham crackers, fork away. The more pokes, the flatter the finished cracker will lay.
Let us know how it goes for you!
