Candle powered flower pot oven?

Given the recent broad changes in weather patterns, I have been looking for alternative (emergency) ways of lighting and staying warm. I found this flowerpot idea on youtube. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about modifying this slightly to make an oven out of it? I am sure what a pot of water could be put on top of the pot to heat up water for condensed soup...hot chocolate...but to actually cook something? It registers 160+ degrees at the top of the pot, so is likely to be warmer inside. It is likely that adding one more candle might increase the temperature. I think it would be useful because it does not include the mess, danger or toxicity of charcoal, butane, etc.

This one claims 200 degrees....
