sugar plums

I know that Christmas has passed, but I have a burning question outstanding!
What is a true sugar plum? What is its history, and does anyone have an authentic recipe?
I have a terrific recipe for a confection that is called a "sugar plum" and uses dried figs, almonds, orange zest, unsweetened cocoa and honey. The final product is rolled in sugar, and I used my "vanilla sugar".
I am interested in the origins of the sugar plum and the original recipes.
Please respond!!!!!!
