In a large bowl, add sugar, yeast and warm water, mix well and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Add flour, salt, and melted butter to the yeast mixture. Mix with your hand or wooden spoon.
Knead the dough until no longer sticky. Cover and let it rise for 45 minutes in warm place.
Knead the dough for 1 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form 7 equal size balls from the dough and roll out into strips. Cover and let sit in a warm place for 45 minutes to an hour to allow the dough to rise.
Preheat your oven to 400F/200C.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the breadsticks for 6 to 7 minutes.
While breadsticks are cooking, microwave 1/4 cup butter, 1 teaspoons garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
After breadsticks have cooked for 6 or 7 minutes, brush the bread sticks with half the butter mixture. Then continue to bake for 5-8 more minutes.
After removing breadsticks from oven, immediately brush the other half of the butter on the sticks.
