Although it is non-toxic, paraffin wax is not what I consider edible. You'd scorch your chocolate or candy melts long before you'd get the Best Chocolate For Dipping.
Q: Is there a natural alternative to paraffin wax for candy coating? I have made the most delicious pistachio cookies (Martha's recipe) that are dipped in chocolate but melt the minute you touch them. Every candy coating we've ever seen has had at least a touch of wax or other semi.
The only paraffin wax that I know of goes into those hand bath things and are heres a good tip for you I had in my candy making collections.
