 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    egg white
    1      tsp.          vanilla
    1      pinch         salt
                         Lots of powdered sugar
    2      jars          Maraschino cherries (drained, then
    2      squares       bitter chocolate
   12      oz.           chocolate chips
    4      T.            melted paraffin
 Cherries:  It is easier to handle the cherries if they are frozen
 first, but not necessary.  Beat the egg white until fluffy.  Add
 vanilla, salt and enough powdered sugar to make a stiff dough.  Beat
 with mixer until very stiff.  Knead like bread dough.  Wrap the
 cherries with sugar mixture and put on buttered wax paper over a cookie
 sheet.  Chill or, better yet, put in freezer.
 Chocolate Dip:  Melt bitter chocolate and chocolate chips over hot
 water in double boiler. Add paraffin.  Keep dip over hot water while
 dipping. Dip cherries.  The stems can be left on for a handle or use a
 toothpick.  Let drain and eat them.
