In the reel by @sthefannyoliveiratv, we see the vlogger go outdoors and bite into what looks to be a potted plant. She takes a large piece off the pot which seems to be filled with soil. However, in the remaining part of the video, she shows us how she actually made this 'potted plant' from scratch, which is actually a chocolate creation. She first cuts a big bar of chocolate into smaller chunks and then melts them in the microwave. Once done, she carefully pours the melted chocolate inside a thermocol cup. She uses it as a mould for the pot, pouring the chocolate such that the insides are coated fully but there is a hollow space in the centre. She places the cup inside the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set. Later, she cuts and peels away the cup and separates the small chocolate 'pot'. She places it upside down on a plate and dusts it with cocoa powder to give it a rough, naturally 'muddy' look.

Next, she opens a pack of Oreos and separates the white cream filling in the centre from the chocolate biscuits. She collects the latter in a bag and pounds them together to make a soil-like crumble. She fills the chocolate pot with pieces of chocolate cake and tops them with the Oreo crumble. Finally, she places a stalk of a plant with leaves in the middle, to make it look like it is 'growing' from the chocolate soil. Watch the full viral video below:

"Okay, you got me."

"Bruh, I thought she got like dirt chunks, cut 'em up, and then melted them then froze them, then put loose dirt around it, wasn't until the Oreos that I realized it was all chocolate lol."

"Thank goodness for that ending because I was beginning to lose it."

"TBH I just expected this to be an authentic form of internet content. Just ... people eating trees now..."
