Crock pot French Onion Soup - Caramelize onions first, then add stock?

So, I'm thinking of making French Onion Soup, and I've seen lots of posts on using a crock pot (or oven) to caramelize the onions (I'm doing a double batch of soup, and don't have a saute pan big enough for 4 lbs of onions).

Based on other posts, I'm thinking I can put the onions in my crock pot overnight on low, and get them to caramelize, then tomorrow, put them in a pot with the broth & seasoning and simmer for an hour or so and then top with the cheese and voila - dinner.

I've seen crock pot soup recipes that put the broth in with the onions, but I would think that they wouldn't caramelize as nicely. I guess I could just add the broth AFTER they are done caramelizing, and keep it all in the crock pot too. Anyone have good results with FOS and a crock pot.
