👉Creamy Crockpot Mac and Cheese


Creamy Crockpot Mac and Cheese


  • 16 ounces (450g) elbow macaroni, cooked al dente
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 2 1/2 cups milk (2% works well)
  • 2 cups fresh shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 ounces Velveeta cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, diced


  1. In a crockpot, combine the cooked elbow macaroni and black pepper.
  2. Add in the butter, evaporated milk, and regular milk, stirring gently to combine.
  3. Fold in the shredded cheddar cheese, Velveeta cheese, and diced cream cheese until evenly distributed.
  4. Set the crockpot to low heat and cook for 2-4 hours, stirring occasionally, until all the cheeses are melted and the mixture is creamy.
  5. After 2 hours, check the consistency and continue cooking until desired creaminess is achieved. If you diced the cheeses, it may take less time to melt.
  6. Once done, serve hot and enjoy the creamy goodness!

Note: Feel free to customize your mac and cheese by adding bacon bits, diced jalapeños, or breadcrumbs for extra flavor and texture

Tips for Making Creamy Crockpot Mac and Cheese:

  1. Choose the Right Pasta: Cook the elbow macaroni until al dente. Overcooking can lead to mushy mac and cheese, especially since it will continue to cook in the crockpot.
  2. Use Quality Cheese: Opt for fresh shredded cheddar cheese for maximum flavor. You can also experiment with different cheese combinations to suit your taste preferences.
  3. Prep Ahead: If you’re short on time, dice the cream cheese and Velveeta cheese in advance. This will help them melt faster in the crockpot.
  4. Stir Occasionally: To ensure even melting and distribution of ingredients, give the mac and cheese a gentle stir occasionally throughout the cooking process.
  5. Check Consistency: After 2 hours of cooking, check the consistency of the mac and cheese. If it’s not creamy enough, continue cooking for an additional hour or until desired creaminess is achieved.
  6. Add Flavorful Extras: Customize your mac and cheese by incorporating additional ingredients like crispy bacon bits, diced jalapeños for a spicy kick, or breadcrumbs for a crunchy topping.
  7. Serve Hot: Mac and cheese is best enjoyed hot and fresh from the crockpot. Keep it on the warm setting if serving over an extended period to prevent it from cooling too quickly.
  8. Store Leftovers Properly: If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave, adding a splash of milk to restore creaminess if needed.

By following these tips, you’ll create a creamy and flavorful crockpot mac and cheese that’s sure to be a hit with family and friends
