Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Coming from a large family, with 8 brothers and sisters, and loads of cousins, Thanksgiving always meant huge gatherings and oodles of delicious food. Over the years our family has grown. My siblings have married and had kids of their own. Their kids have grown and some of them have married too. We still get together for Thanksgiving each and every year. And, now we have even more food!
I love that we have kept traditions in place and continue to get together and give thanks with and for one another. However, one thing has changed. As I age, I find that my once favorite foods at Thanksgiving, while still my favorite, do not agree with my body anymore. The delicious pies and desserts now cause heartburn and other tummy issues.
My very favorite treat to indulge during the holidays are my Oreo Reese Cookie Dough Brownies. The name alone makes me drool. But 2 bites in and my heartburn is kicking! I still want to enjoy a small portion of my favorite treat, so I make sure I stock up on Pepcid®.
Pepcid®treats my heartburn almost immediately. And, it doesn’t taste chalky. It’s minty and actually tastes pretty good. Just one tablet and I’m good for the evening. I always have some on hand. And I love that it is available at our local Walmart!
Just head on over to the heartburn relief section at Walmart to find Pepcid® . In our store it is right next to the Walmart Pharmacy!
Once you’ve stocked up, you can have a bit of your favorite foods without the pain of heartburn! Check out our recipe for Oreo Reese Cookie Dough Brownies Recipe – Heaven In A Pan?
This recipe is easy peasy – so easy I could even make it! That says a lot. I’m not the best in the kitchen. Basically, gather up your favorite treats and layer them. I have seen a multitude of ideas on Pinterest – Reese Cups, M&M’s, fudge, peanut butter layers, mint cookies, the choices are ENDLESS!
Here’s what I used:
Mini Reese Cups (or you can use the full size!)
Cookie Dough – you can use the refrigerated cookie dough from the store!
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9×13 pan with non-stick spray or you can line with parchment paper if you prefer.
Press cookie dough into the bottom of the pan. Arrange Oreos in a flat layer on top of the cookie dough. Top with Reese Cups. I used the mini’s but the regular size would probably work better since they are “flatter”. Top with brownie batter. Bake for 35min. I started checking mine at 30 min so they wouldn’t burn, but they were not completely done until about the 35 minute mark. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
