First, count out how many sweets you have. There are four types of sweet. You only have five of the first three types, but 10 of the fourth type. You therefore have to put two of this fourth type of sweet into each of the five portions.

Look for sweets that are one per portion; in other words, varieties of candies that number five pieces in all. If you find two of these candies next to each other, you can draw a line through where the connect, since they can't exist in the same portion.
