Although the ingredients start out in the lateral columns filled with five layer icing, they will spontaneously slide into the adjacent columns after the liquorice locks are destroyed, and some moves are made in centre-board.
The two columns of three layer icing must be destroyed, unless the ingredient can be switched one more column over. If a switch is made, there will be only one square of three layer icing and one square of five layer icing to be destroyed so the ingredient can exit.
Try to go for the keys when possible to open up the board and reveal the coconut wheels.
It is usually worth the effort to eliminate the candies between the coconut wheels to combine them to eliminate the entire board.
It is even better to remove the icing right below the wheels so that their combination can hit the bottom five-layer icing.
Also try to eliminate the liquorice binding the two candies at the top prior to setting off the pair of coconut wheels - this releases the ingredients to go toward the bottom. *Also look out for opportunities to try to switch the ingredients towards a more central column if possible - it is easier to break all the way through the middle than the edges.
