In a large soup pot add butter and onion, cook until onions are translucent about 2 minutes. Add ½ of the heavy cream and the flour to the onions, whisk the flour in until there are no lumps. Add remaining heavy cream, chicken broth, frozen broccoli and cheese. Let simmer ten minutes. Add salt, pepper and garlic pepper to your taste. Let the soup simmer until it thickens.
