Found this recipe on a crock pot only website and have not tried it as yet. Looks like a easy recipe for this.

I thought this would be an easy way to try this for the first time. The flavor is good, it just turns out too runny. I think it would have been the right consistency without adding the 4th cup of milk. I did get a lot of really brown stuff in the seams of my crockpot, which I didn't scrape up as much. My crockpot tends to run hot, so that may have been a challenge. I used to dip apples.
