For the mass

We make a fountain of flour and add the butter together with the yolks, the baking powder and the salt. We sand with our hands. We return to form a fountain and add the rest of the ingredients, integrating them from the inside out and then use our hands and finish kneading until it does not stick to the table. Cut into four portions, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. We stretch on a floured countertop at least 1 cm thick and then cut sticks approximately the thickness of an index finger. Place the sticks on a floured baking sheet and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes. Remove and let cool before using.

for the honey

Pour all the ingredients into a pot and cook over medium heat to infuse for at least 45 minutes. We pass through a strainer and return to the pot until it takes point of honey. Remove and let cool before assembling.

for the armed

In a mold greased with butter, put parchment paper and then insert sticks of dough and honey until full, but trying to reverse the direction of the sticks on each level so that the honey does not leak between layers. Another good tip is to put shredded sticks on each layer of sticks and scrape with a fork to create an even layer. Finish the assembly by decorating with your favorite candies.
