Start the level by clearing the majority of the Licorice Swirls as quickly as you can. With each one you clear it will become increasingly easier to make special candies.
Next keep clearing blockers until an Ingredient in positioned above a teleporter at the bottom of the playing field. At this stage you have to clear candies in the top left corner in order to move the Ingredient through the teleporter. It helps if you just make special candies and hold on to them until you need them.
With candies of four colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Consider holding on to special candies until you can combine them because of the combination’s enhanced effect.
Match candies near the bottom of the playing field (or as low as possible) as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies. This in turn will hopefully start a chain reaction that will create new opportunities to make special candies.
