Begin with gathering all of your ingredients.
Start with combining your vegetable shortening, granulated white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and hot water together to make a cream base for your dough. Mix together well.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients including the flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
Add in the chocolate chips. Then add in the M&Ms if you want them mixed in the dough.
Place the dough in the refrigerator for at least one hour to cool.
Preheat your oven to 350°.
Once the dough has cooled, use a cookie scoop to make evenly sized dough balls and place them on a cookie sheet approx 2" apart.
Bake your cookie dough balls for 10-12 minutes or until your chocolate chip M&M cookies are golden brown.
Remove your cookies from the oven and let them cool on the cookie sheet for approx 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a cooling rack.
Once your cookies are cooled completely store them in an air tight container.
