Introduction: Sweet Treat, Homemade Honey Sticks.

This Instructable will teach you how to easily make a honey stick. It's a simple and tasty snack.

Step 1: Materials

1. Honey, of cource! http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/honey
2. A straw, make sure it's not bendy.
3. Sissors
4 Painter's tape.

*This can get sticky*

Step 2: Sealing the End

Pinch one end of the straw closed. Fold a piece tape around the pinched end to keep it closed, then wrap a second piece piece around the circumference of the pinched end to make it honey proof and sealed shut.

Step 3: Air Hole and Fill.

With the tip of your sissors, snip a tiny cut at the edge of the tape of the sealed end. This will let air out and allow you to fill the straw with honey.

Filling:
For me, filling is easy. This is because the lid of my "honey bear" has a hole that perfectly fits the straw. All I have to is incert the open end of the straw into the container, invert the container, and squeeze. The honey will be forced into the straw, and the hole you cut will not allow the air to be compacted at the bottom of the straw. It will release the pressure so that the honey doesn't shoot back out. Finaly, Tape over the hole and enjoy. No more waiting 'till Farmers Markets.

Eating:
You can suck the honey out through the unsealed end, chew on the stick, or try to lick it out.

I haven't tried sealing both ends, but this might be able to be stored if you did.
Bunch several together to make a honey comb.

or use a seal a meal. with the seal only function.

You could also just melt the end of the straw with a lighter, take your fingers to press the ends together and seal. It doesn't burn your fingers, but be careful.

Thanks for the suggestion! I just did my own instructable using the technique you're referring to.

You could alsom use wax! I've seen honey straws sealed with wax.

How do you eat it? Suck the honey out, or bite the straw?

What if you froze these, extracted the stick, and used them as tea stirrers?

That's a cool idea. Does honey freeze?

...freeze...cool idea...

Yeh, well, I thought it was amusing!

Nice idea for a snack - #2 son would love them, whilst simultaneously gluing himself to the fridge :-)

#1 wouldn't like them? (Do you actually call them #1 and #2? ..."One, get over here!")
