    The chocolate is a polishing agent, and the bottom of the soda can, once polished, will make a suitable parabolic mirror for focusing solar energy onto a combustable material.

    Is taking that bite out of the chocolate bar first a required step, or optional? :D

    I've seen this technique before. I think some chocolate bars are sort of waxy, and will reflect the light from the sun. Good job!
