Chocolate, Sultana and Pistachio because I didn't have any Dates

So this recipe I made when I was coming up with things to have at my birthday. The original recipe said to use dates but I used sultanas instead. I had a few mishaps when trying to follow the original recipe method but I found ways around it. The original recipe I found in "4 Ingredients: Gluten free, Lactose Free" by Kim McCosker.

3 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sultanas
3 tablespoons shredded coconut
1/2 cup pistachios
2-3 tbsp of any non lactose milk (I used almond milk)

Add all the ingredients, but the milk, in a bowl and mix. Add the milk, one tablespoon at a time, mixing, until it's somewhat sticky but not sloppy, you want to be able to hold it to roll it.
Crush the pistachios finely and pour out on to a plate.
Pick up bits of the mixture make a small ball and roll into the pistachios and place on a separate plate.
place in fridge to chill before serving.
The pictures not great but they tasted almost like rum-ball just without the rum
