Seems the first attempt massively failed.

We've melted cacao butter and added canola oil. But it suddenly brew way too heavily and triggered the fire alarm.
That scared me and I tossed in too much salt. We've managed to cool it down a bit and then added herbs which still immediately got burned.

But now, a day later it's still a messy soup.
Soo I've now put it into the freezer.
