1/4 bar (1-ounce) paraffin wax


In a large bowl, combine butter, powdered sugar, maraschino cherries, peanut butter, walnuts, coconut, and salt; shape into 1-inch balls.

In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate chips and paraffin wax. Insert a toothpick into each ball; dip into chocolate mixture to coat exterior.

Place onto wax paper to set. Use another toothpick to push ball from inserted toothpick. If a hole remains where toothpick was inserted, add a small amount of chocolate coating to cover.
