Melli the Caramel Fairy is off to help with an ice cream celebration, and she needs a little help from her friends in this sweet Candy Fairies adventure.
Melli the Caramel Fairy has been chosen to go to Ice Cream Isles to help with the preparation for the Summer Spectacular, an exciting annual event with a parade—of ice cream floats! Prince Scoop has invited Melli to his family’s castle to try her hand at a new caramel dipping sauce for the ice cream. All the other candy fairies are jealous, but Melli is feeling unsure about going by herself. And if she makes new friends, will they get along with her old ones? Find out in this delicious scoop of frozen treats and good friends.
Frozen Treats Bittersweet Melli the Caramel Fairy licked her fingers one by one. “Mmm,” she sighed. “There’s nothing like the warm, gooey taste of fresh caramel.” She looked over at a caramella bird perched in the tree above her. “I know you agree, right?” she asked. Melli dipped another finger into the barrel and lifted it up to the bird. “Let me know what you think. I am trying out new recipes for a caramel sauce.”
The yellow-and-white bird flew down to Melli’s shoulder and gently pecked at the Candy Fairy’s finger. The bird closed her eyes and flapped her wings.
Melli laughed. “I take that as a compliment!” she said.
She stirred the large wooden spoon around in the barrel once again. “I think this is just sugar-tastic,” she told the bird. “I can’t wait for Sun Dip tonight. My friends will love this sweet treat.”
“We don’t have to wait for tonight!” Dash the Mint Fairy called from above.
Melli looked up and was surprised to see her four Candy Fairy friends circling the barrel. She giggled. “What are you all doing here?”
