First clear the Licorice Lock and then clear the Chocolate at the top of the playing field. Once you’ve cleared the Chocolate you won’t have to worry about Chocolate spreading any longer. However, near the end of the level the Chocolate at the bottom of the playing field will spread and cover the Jellies. If at all possible try to clear all the Chocolate.
Next you should focus on making special candies that will remove slices off of the Jelly Cakes. To make it a bit easier you could clear the Licorice Locks trapped the Striped and Wrapped candy and then to combine the two special candies.
Match candies near the bottom of the playing field as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully start a chain reaction and create new opportunities to make special candies. With candies of five colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Make as many special candies as you can and when possible combine them to maximize their effects.
While matching candies at the bottom it can be easy to ignore making special candies at the top of the playing field. So pause after every move and glance at the entire playing field to see whether you can make special candies. It would be a waste to miss out on a chance to make a special candy only because you didn’t take your time.
