Here's something I haven't used for a while, but might provide
inspiration. For large values, it is  s l o w.

SetAttributes[saveInNotebook, HoldFirst];

saveInNotebook[var_, value_] :=
With[{c = Compress@value},
    ExpressionCell[Defer[var = Uncompress@c;], "Input", CellOpen ->

You might find it difficult to find the closed cell that
saveInNotebook creates. So you might add prefatory text or heading
before evaluating saveInNotebook "in-place".
