Directions:
In a bowl stir the brown sugar, 1/2 stick of the butter, graham cracker crumbs and peanut butter until the mixture is smooth. Cover and chill the mixture for 1 hour or until it is firm enough to form into balls. Form teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls and transfer the balls as they are formed to a baking sheet lined with wax paper. In a metal bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 3/4 stick butter, stirring until the mixture is smooth, and let the chocolate mixture cool. Dip the balls into the chocolate mixture with a fork, coating them well and letting the excess drip off, transfer them as they are coated to the baking sheet. Chill the balls covered loosely for at least overnight or at least 1 hour before the baby shower. Recipe makes about 40 chocolate peanut butter balls.
