|1. Place potatoes in a 3-quart slow cooker. Pour in water. Dot with cream cheese and butter. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-9 hours until potatoes are tender.|
|2. Transfer all ingredients from slow cooker to a large bowl; mash potato mixture until smooth. Stir in the 1 cup cheddar, cream, chives, salt and pepper. Return potatoes to a lightly greased slow cooker.|
|3. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Cover and cook on high until cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes. Serve immediately, or use warm setting to keep potatoes warm for up to 4 hours.|
