Step 1: Materials
Honey: There are a lot of different types of honey that you can use. You can use any basic honey that you find on the shelf at your grocery store. Or you can find specialty honeys that are made primarily from one type of flower. Each different flower type gives a distinct flavor. Most areas with a lot of farm land will have bee keepers that will sell locally made honey.
Straws: Any plastic straw can work. I prefer to use clear strawing. The process is a little easier if you can see the honey as your are filling the straws. Also a clear straw shows off the delicious honey inside.
Candle: You need a heat source to seal the ends of the straw. I like to use a candle because it is stationary but you can also use a lighter.
Needle Nose Pliers: You need a pair of pliers to pinch the straw and hold it shut while sealing the ends. The narrow tip of needle nose pliers works best.
Step 2: Cut the Straws to the Desired Length
Step 3: Fill the Straw With Honey
If you are not using honey from a squeeze bottle, you can insert the honey using a syringe or a funnel with a lot of patience.
Step 4: Pinch the End of the Straw Closed
Step 5: Melt the End of the Straw to Seal it
Once the tip is melted, move the straw away from the candle but continue holding it closed with the pliers. You need to wait for the plastic to completely re-solidify. After a few seconds the plastic will be cool and you will have an air tight seal.
Step 6: Let the Straw Sit So That the Honey Can Settle to the Bottom
Step 7: Seal the Second End
Step 8: Enjoy Your Delicious Honey Sticks
If properly stored, these can last forever. But they will probably get eaten up before long.
