Creating a paycheck for 401K company contribution

I am trying to pay my employee end of year 401K company contribution.  Normally I run this through payroll when I pay them, however, we're done with payroll for the year.  Is there a way to create a pay check for 401k company contribution with zero salary.  Please note that this employee is also reached their max 401K contribution for the year. Thanks!
