This was my favorite as a child. My mother, who as a young bride in the 1950's, found it in a newspaper! She would make Pomanders every year just for me. :-) One variation from above is that she would crush the vanilla wafers until very fine. (She used a blender and crushed the cookies in small batches.) The same was done with pecans. Today I crush the ingredients as fine as I can with a food processor. One final note, we rolled them in red or green colored sugar (red made them pomanders and the green for Christmas!) They were stored in one tin for each color. I now make them for grandnephews and nieces. They don't expect smooth creamy "rum balls" but rather, those wonderful "textured" orange chocolate things! They know they are POMANDERS! Enjoy the tradition.
