Stop mixer, add flour and salt; mix just until flour disappears. Transfer to prepared pan and place in freezer while preparing next layer. This keeps layers separate. Heat oven to 325 degrees.

  • Pour pecan layer over well-chilled chocolate layer. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool completely.
  • For glaze, melt chocolate with butter, whisking until smooth. Pour over cooled bars, tipping pan to cover. Refrigerate several hours before cutting into squares.
