You're nearly there! After creating caramelDelight, you have to initialize self.chocolateBox as an NSArray containing the dictionary caramelDelight. You could initialize self.chocolateBox with an array literal, or with one of the NSArray init methods:

// INIT WITH ARRAY LITERAL
self.chocolateBox = @[caramelDelight];

// INIT WITH ONE OF ARRAY INIT METHODS:
    // ALLOC INITWITHOBJECTS
    self.chocolateBox = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects: caramelDelight, nil];
    // ARRAYWITHOBJECTS
    self.chocolateBox = [NSArray arrayWithObjects: caramelDelight, nil];

I hope this helps!
