We are proud to offer fresh-crafted, locally-made, gourmet chocolate. Our preservative-free treats have been made fresh in Henderson, Nevada since 1981, and most of our ingredients are made on site. We also offer one of the world's largest cactus gardens, which we decorate annually for the holidays and Valentine's Day with hundreds of thousands of lights and festive designs. Ethel M Chocolates is a Mars, Inc. company. You may be familiar with other Mars products, like M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, and Dove, among others. But Ethel M Chocolates is the only gourmet, premium chocolate brand in the Mars portfolio. And it's made fresh, here in Henderson. Stop by!

Nice stop between strip and our resort. Staff is welcoming and friendly. Chocolate is amazing. A must if you are near Henderson.

I love cactus & it was awesome to see so many different kinds in one place! I got some nice pictures. Remember to wear a hat!!! It was 115 degrees the day we were there! It was great to cool off in the chocolate shop.

It's very simply a chocolate factory. There isn't much more to it than that. I would recommend taking the chocolate class they offer every hour if you go - that makes the trip worthwhile. It's an enjoyable class and you do learn a lot. The...More
