In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, combine flour with salt; stir in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the nuts and half of the chocolate. Stir into butter mixture in 2 additions.

Spread in parchment paper–lined 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan. Sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts and chocolate.

Cut into squares. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
