Notes about this crockpot Mac & Cheese Recipe:

Unless you REALLY like the taste of cream cheese in your mac and cheese, don’t use the whole 8 oz block. Instead use half the block (4 oz) and a few slabs of butter – you can always add in some more cream cheese as it cooks if you really want.

My family likes our mac and cheese REALLY cheesy so I add 4 cups of shredded cheese instead of only 3 cups. Sometimes I’ll add a couple chunks of Velveeta to the 3 cups of cheese instead of adding an additional cup of shredded/grated cheese.
