If you coat your palms with powdered sugar before attempting to roll the balls your hands will get less sticky. Put the dough back in the refrigerator whenever you are not actively using it; it is easier to work when cold.
You don't actually have to bake these: they make a reasonable fudge when left uncooked, but if left in the refrigerator for several days before baking they will become dried out. When done, the unused powdered sugar will have small shards of chocolate in it; these can be strained out and the sugar will be re-usable.
