It is hard to settle the ingredient in the column that has a teleporter. Once it exits the teleporter, it is hard to clear the candies. However, getting moon struck may clear the candies in the side pockets
Ingredients can often go into the wrong columns and get stuck in the "stuck zone" or even "dead zone" due to the awkward shape. Ingredients that reach the "dead zone" can make the level impossible to win; if one ingredient ends up here, it is failure unless you use the free switch booster.
The moon scale can tip with as little as 8 candies of imbalance.
The ingredients are worth 30,000 points. Hence, an additional 20,000 points is required to earn one star.
Carefully make matches at the bottom to slide ingredients down to the bottom. Avoid having the ingredients get in "stuck" zone and "dead" zone (shown in the photo). If so, look for the opportunity to switch the ingredient to the column with a teleporter.
Once the ingredients are settled at the correct place above the blue teleporters, make special candies, especially horizontal striped candies, to have them teleported to the sides right above the exits. Striped candies combined with wrapped candies are very important to clear the side pockets.
An easy way to bring down the ingredients after it reaches above the teleporter is to combine striped + wrapped candies on the 7th row of the middle board, though the combination at that spot is easier said than done.
