    Plum what?

    Jam, poached plums, plum puree?

    It's not a match I've ever tried, but cherries and chocolate are a pairing....

    you mean Plum as the filling ? or flavor in addition to chocolate ?  Martha Stewart has a great  rolled cake recipe,  That is what I used for the Ghittard Chocolate Passion competition w/ addition to m own filling and decorations.
