So easy and tasty! I made a bigger batch because I had a full pound of ground beef and didn't want it to go bad. Because it was such a big batch I had to cook it longer, around 1.5 hours. I also made sure to add a little extra of everything else. My husband and I ate this for 3 days lunch and/or dinner and we did not get sick of it. I served it with cornbread. This is going in my favorite recipe book, loved it.
Yummy on a cold winter night. My husband and son both loved this recipe. I served it with some warm cornbread.

I have a bit of an obsession. Lately, I cannot get enough of s’mores. If you take a look at my Pinterest board, you’ll notice that half of my pins are s’more-related. S’more cupcakes, s’more puppy chow, s’more lattes...it just never ends. So, it’s no surprise that I developed a recipe for S’mores Bars.
