About: I am a redneck.

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.

    Ok to recap 

    So Awesome tastes like awesome, if you believe in awesome, which in turn may taste like Dr.Pepper, which may taste like dark cherry cola, bitter pepsi and cola with extra sugar to be sweet, good ol'fanta (or sunkist(or orange crush)) or root beer and pepsi

    Dr.Pepper tastes like slightly bitter coke and pepsi with sugar.

    I dont know what it is but it says it has 23 flavors. But the best part about dr. pepper is even after its diluted by ice it still tastes good

    no, that's not disgusting, try what I've seen a few people do before, I'm not sure what it's called anymore. take every sort of soda you can imagine and put a little of each in your glass and try that. now I won't say it doesn't have a certain appeal, but mostly I like mine one at a time. LOL teenagers like to try it.
