  4. Dissolve the baking soda in hot water. Add it to the batter along with the salt and stir.
  5. Gently stir the flour. DO NOT OVERMIX! Before the flour is completely combined, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  6. Using a large spoon drop the batter onto ungreased baking pans. OPTIONAL: Sprinkle just a few granules of sea salt on top for an extra kick.
