In honor of the oncoming Valentine's Day I wanted to make something unexpected. But, looking in my kitchen I didn't have the ingredients to really make anything, anything except marshmallows that is. I also spotted my rosewater and I love any excuse to put a few drops of that in so rosewater marshmallows were born.
I popped one in my mouth and it was super delicious but it felt lonely. So then pistachio rice krispie treats with rosewater marshmallows came to be. The light pink color of the marshmallows shows up in the rice krispie treats and I love the small flecks of pistachio within. They turned out adorable and most importantly delicious. Now I'm off to share them!
