Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar in a large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking soda and salt. Beat until mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
Remove half of dough; set aside. Add peanut butter to remaining dough in mixer bowl. Mix at medium until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Remove dough from mixer bowl; wrap in plastic wrap. Place reserved half of dough into mixer bowl; add melted chocolate. Beat at low speed until mixed (about 1 minute). Wrap chocolate dough in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate both doughs until firm (2 hours).
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Press about 1/2 teaspoonful of each peanut butter and chocolate dough to create marbled effect; roll in 1-inch balls. Rolls balls in 1/2 cup sugar. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set and cookies just begin to brown.
Immediately press 1 chocolate star in center of each cookie. Cool 1 minute. Remove from sheet. Cool completely on wire racks.
NOTE: Chocolate candies will melt after pressing onto hot cookies. To cool the chocolate, refrigerate cookies about 20 minutes or until chocolate is firm.
