If you look carefully, you'll see there are fluffy, floaty marshmallow animals trapped beneath the layers and you'll need to break through those layers to set them free.
Each time you match candies covering any tile blocking the marshmallow animal, a layer is removed and you're one step closer to setting them free. Remove all of the layers to set the release the animals from their candy coating!
You'll be given a number of moves in the level to make sure all animals are free. Be sure to make your matches wisely and release them as soon as possible, or you'll need to try the level again!
