I can with experience say that waxed paper = really bad idea.  Even if 
you've cooled the paste down somewhat from the temp it reaches by the time 
it's boiled down, if it's cool enough to pour, its tendency is to melt the 
wax and weld itself quite firmly to the paper base.  It must then be picked 
off in little slivers and still leaves a somewhat "papery" product.  I 
suppose if you're trying to raise the fiber content of your diet...but 
still.  *g*  I've done this with homemade turtles, too.

Take home lesson:  When making candies, stick with parchment paper.
