This is a very simple tin can heater and cocoa maker that takes about 30-45 minutes to make. I am not responsible for any and all injuries fire is not a toy don't act stupid around it. Thanks for looking please rate and comment.

Step 1: Materials

This project requires a hammer,nails,soup can, soda can, and a dremel.

Step 2: Make the Burner

To start simply take the hammer and flatten the top of the can.
Then use the nails to make a hole for the chimney

Step 3: Make the Base and Cup

Start by cutting the can in half. Then take the bottom and sand around the sharp edges this will be our cup. Take the top and cut it shorter and make a v shape as seen in the picture this is the base.

Step 4: Make Cocoa

Set the burner on the base and fill the cup with water then put in cocoa mix start the fire. Use the fire to stay warm along with the cocoa to keep your inside warm.

    Hey, this is pretty cool! What doesn't Dr Pepper taste like. They don't sell it in Australia.

    It taste like a cross between root beer and pepsi

    Oh... Ok.


    Tastes nothing like root beer and Pepsi. It tastes like awesome.

    Well what does awesome taste like?

    Pretty frickin' good.

    To me awesome tastes like good old Fanta (or Sunkist (or orange crush))

    Oh damn dude!!!! I LOVE ORANGE CRUSH! My all time favorite!!! They sell them 99 cents here in Colorado for a 16 oz (Yay, I revived a 3 year old comment!)

    Believe in the Awesome and you will taste the Awesome.

    Make sense? Probably not.
