These Chocolate Walnut Butter Tart Bars are so easy to make and combine the flavour of butter tarts with crunchy walnuts and chocolate chips. YUM!
One of my favourite baked goodies is a sweet, sticky, caramel-y, delicious butter tart and these butter tart bars are very reminiscent of this Canadian classic pastry.
This recipe has the background taste of a legendarily good Canadian butter tart, with the added crunch of toasty walnuts and luscious chocolate. Another perfect recipe for the Holiday freezer or at any time of the year.

- 1 cup flour
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup salted butter
- 1½ cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Using your hands, rub together the ingredients for the bottom layer until well blended and crumbly.
Press evenly into the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch square pan that has been lightly greased and lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes before pouring on the topping.
Mix together all the ingredients for the top layer well and pour over baked base.
Reduce oven to 325 degrees F and return to the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before cutting. These will cut best after they have been refrigerated.
I cut square pans of cookie bars in 4 rows by 6 rows to yield 2 dozen.
