Mincemeat pie *can* contain meat.
I can also think of at least one dessert-ish dish from period that sometimes 
contains meat---pynade (hope I got the spelling correct) can have chicken in 
it and whenever I've seen it or eaten it, it's been interpreted as a candy.
And of course, there's that new taste treat, chocolate-covered bacon....
