Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and boil for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
Drain and partially cover the pan to allow potatoes to dry.
In a large bowl, mash the potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper, cream cheese, and sour cream.
Mix in milk until desired consistency is reached.
If making these a day in advance refrigerate overnight.
About 2 to 3 hours before serving, oil the crockery insert of a slow cooker.
Add potatoes, cover, and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
Turn to low and continue cooking until serving time.
Stir a few times.
Mix in 1 tsp truffle oil just before serving.
