How do I clear Candy Crush Level 65?

Wow. Candy Crush Level 65 ramps the difficulty of this game up to a whole new level. Minty Meadow introduces the "Chocolate" obstacle to overcome, and this level coats the board with Jelly and unleashes Chocolate enough to drive you to madness. In our Candy Crush Saga level 65 guide, we'll teach you how to overcome the chocolate and get past this tricky level.

One of the challenging aspects to this level is that all of the licorice and chocolate squares can only be cleared by matching into them one way. Odds are pretty good that if you're stuck, it's because you can't get a properly oriented 3 in a row to clear these.

The priorities when playing this level are:

Ideally, you want to do these two things as fast as possible. When I finally cleared Candy Crush Level 65, I cleared the chocolate and almost all the licorice in about 10 moves, leaving me plenty to finish cleaning up the level.

You have to get three of the same color stacked in a column in order to clear the squares that I've marked with red in the screenshot. I'd suggest rolling Candy Crush Saga level 65 (Need info on rolling? Click here!) until you've a good number of the same color in these two columns. That way, you don't have to wait around or rely on luck to get started at the bottom. The yellow squares can be relatively challenging as well, so having some nearby candy of the same color here is a close second.

The other critical thing is to get special candies. If you do a 5-in-a-row match and get a color bomb, and you match that with a striped candy, you can clear almost the entire board. This is critical to clearing out the little nooks and crannies. Without this, you just won't have enough turns to align everything properly.

Make no mistake - Candy Crush Saga level 65 is a level intended to sell boosts. Clearing this without spending a cent is going to take a lot of luck. It took me several whole sets of lives to finally finish this, and I had several attempts where I got very, very close. In one, I even managed to match 3 or 4 5-in-a-row matches, which takes a ton of luck - and I still lost!

Good luck and happy crushing!
