Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand-held electric mixer, cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy and smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water then add to batter along with salt. Mix in flour until incorporated. Fold in M&Ms with a rubber spatula.
Using a spring-loaded ice-cream scoop or a spoon, drop even and large spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned
