Well, I don't think this recipe is complete. It says to heat the first 4 ingredients but there is no butter on the list and there is only salt listed for the glaze. I tried to "wing" it, but my sticks turned out kinda just blan and with a chewy consistancy. Not really enjoyable. I liked the simplicity of the recipe, I just wish it was complete. No stars from me.
