This is comfort food at its best, you'll be feeling snug as a bug in a rug sipping on creamy cheesy goodness and chewing on broccoli bits (are you saying yum yet?! ;)) definitely a recipe to use on those rainy or snowy days...
What you'll need:
8 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 c water
1 1/2 c freshly shredded cheese
1 package frozen chopped broccoli
3 - 4 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 tsp pepper
NOTE: I used mild sharp cheddar and honestly, getting a block of cheese and shredding it yourself makes the best cheese to use in this recipe, if you get preshredded cheese it doesn't melt quite the same. In the end this is YOUR recipe - make it as you please ;).
Place all your broccoli in a microwave safe bowl - place in microwave and cook for 8 - 10 minutes.
While the broccoli is heating up add all the other ingredients to the crockpot.
When you take the broccoli out make sure to use hot pads - the bowl will be hot!
Grab a potato masher and mash the broccoli bits, (the more you mash, the thicker your soup will be.... yum? :) Once they are mashed to your liking transfer them to the crockpot. Realize too that the broccoli will continue to cook and soften once in the crockpot. Feel free to mash them bits more later! ;)
Cook on low for 1- 2 hours stirring occasionally. Enjoy and say YUM! :D
Let me know how you like it and how it turned out for you! Happy cooking! xo ~Dawn
