I was inspired to make these when I was drinking one of my favorite chocolate tea’s. I wanted something with some spice that would pair well with my tea, but was only a couple of bites so it was like a snack perfect for tea.

Drizzled with honey and topped with sweet red plums makes these little bites a delight for a snack or accompainment for your afternoon tea.
