When the weather cools off and our lives start to get busy again after winter break from school, I depend on my Crock Pot! It saves me when I want to make sure I get a warm meal on the table before we head in a bunch of different directions. This easy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese is one of the slow cooker recipes I come back to again and again.
The entire family loves it which means it’s a recipe I know I can count on!
CROCK POT MAC AND CHEESE
Macaroni and cheese is comfort food and it’s one that everyone in our family loves. I make Velveeta Mac and Cheese fairly often and recently learned how to make Instant Pot Mac and Cheese so I’ve added it into the rotation too! If you’re looking for a good mac and cheese to put in the oven, try Cheesecake Factory Macaroni and Cheese. It’s a delicious copycat recipe.
But Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese will always be one of my favorites! It uses a variety of cheeses including Velveeta, which makes it extremely creamy. You can make homemade macaroni and cheese without slaving away in the kitchen!
HOW TO MAKE CROCK POT MACARONI AND CHEESE
Just like most slow cooker recipes, this creamy Crockpot mac and cheese recipe is easy to make! Once you’ve got all of the ingredients in your slow cooker, you can let it cook while you take care of other things!
You use familiar ingredients and it just takes a few steps before you’ve got dinner on its way to being done!
You’ll need milk, a can of evaporated milk, elbow macaroni, butter, and cheese. Then with a few seasonings, you’ll be cooking!

SLOW COOKER MAC AND CHEESE
The ingredients list for this easy main dish or side dish includes:
- 2 ½ cups milk
- 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 pound elbow macaroni
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, cubed
- 4 ounces Velveeta, cubed
- 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
- ½ cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
I like the mix of cheeses because the Velveeta makes the mac ‘n cheese creamy while the Colby Jack and Sharp Cheddar add some extra to the flavor. The great thing about this recipe is that you can play with the flavor just by changing up the types of cheese you use!
CROCK POT MAC AND CHEESE RECIPE
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, evaporated milk, salt, pepper, and paprika.
Then get out your Crock Pot and place the uncooked macaroni noodles in the crock of the slow cooker.
I prefer to use my oval shape Crock-Pot for this recipe. You can use any 6-quart slow cooker and you’ll have plenty of room for your macaroni to cook. We have this 6-QT Cook & Carry Crock Pot and it works great for mac and cheese!
Once you have your noodles in the Crock Pot, pour the milk mixture over them. Make sure that all of the noodles are covered by milk.
Then place the butter, Velveeta, and shredded cheese on top of the noodles.
Put the lid on your Crock Pot and cook on low for 1.5 to 2 hours. Be sure to stir it about halfway through. I usually stir it every thirty minutes or so if I’m at home.
This isn’t a slow cooker recipe I use if I’m going to be out of the house all day long, but it works great if you’re going to be home. You can put it in the Crockpot after school and it’s ready by dinner time. It’s also great for weekends when you’re around but don’t want to be spending all of your time in the kitchen!
It’s really the best crock pot mac and cheese because it’s so easy to make but packs some good flavor! I know you’ve probably had macaroni and cheese that was kind of bland. Thanks to the mix of cheeses and paprika, this is a step or two above your ordinary macaroni!
CROCK POT MACARONI AND CHEESE FAQ
Can you cook macaroni in a Crock Pot?
Yes! You can cook macaroni in a Crock Pot! That’s the best part about it! You don’t need to cook your macaroni before you make this. Just put the pasta in the slow cooker and go!
I’ve got no complaints about that!
Do I have to use Velveeta?
You don’t have to use Velveeta but I think it makes the creamiest macaroni and cheese. If you don’t want to use Velveeta, then I would suggest that you substitute with cream cheese so you still get the creamy texture.
Can I use cream cheese to make slow cooker mac ‘n cheese?
Absolutely! It’s a great subsitution for the Velveeta. You can use 4 oz. of cream cheese cubed instead of the Velveeta.
Is condensed milk the same as evaporated milk?
No! It’s not! Condensed milk is sweetened. You want to make sure you use evaporated milk for this recipe.
Does mac and cheese need eggs?
This slow cooker mac and cheese recipe does not need eggs. I generally only use eggs if I’m making baked macaroni and cheese.
Why was my mac and cheese so soft and mushy?
If you cook the macaroni too quickly or for too long it will get too soft. Be sure to cook on LOW to avoid cooking it too quickly. If you find that you have issues with your slow cooker, be sure to stir the mac and cheese after one hour. Then check on it every 15-30 minutes.
Depending on your Crock Pot it could take as little as an hour and a half to cook or up to three hours.
Why didn’t my cheese melt well?
If you find that your shredded cheese isn’t melting well in this recipe, try buying a block of cheese and shredding it yourself. The shredded cheese in the bag has an ingredient that prevents it from sticking together and it can sometimes impact how well it melts.
Can I add things to this recipe like chicken, ham, or veggies?
Absolutely! That’s one of the easiest ways to take macaroni and cheese from side dish status to the main dish! I personally love making our Crockpot Shredded Chicken and adding it in after the Crock Pot macaroni and cheese is ready. Once it’s cooked completely, you can add anything your family loves!

Colby Jack cheese, cream cheese, margarine, whole milk, and large shell macaroni to hold all of the warm ooey-gooeyness. Stir in steamed broccoli, crumbled bacon, and sun-dried tomatoes for a complete meal in one bowl.

I like my Man N Cheese with sharp cheese the way my mom did.
The best tasting Mac & Cheese has come from using up several different odds and ends in the fridge, OR intentionally purchasing “cheese ends”, a package of deli odds and ends, at the store. Fontina & sharp cheddar are requirements! Any pasta shape works for me.
I’ve never tried making in a crock pot though. Will give it a go next weekend. We have a routine of Mac & Cheese as “Saturday Lunch” in the winter. My teen loves it.
