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!

Been going to Ethel M since moving to the Las Vegas Valley ten years ago. They have the best home made chocolates and selection I have seen. Love to visit at Christmas when they have their fabulous Christmas light display up. It's nice to combine a stroll through the lighted cactus garden, enjoy the music if we're lucky enough to...

I experienced the Cactus Garden on one of the coldest and windiest nights in Dec. It was still incredibly magical and a wonderful shared experience with good friends. Ethel M does a wonderful job lighting up the spectacular garden and the nighttime vista was an amazing addition to the holiday season. I only wish I had made this a holiday... More

We went to get the grandkids candy. There was the M&M store attached to Ethel M's. We purchased all different flavors and colors for the grandkids. Of course, we couldn't leave without getting it for us as well.

My son and family visited us over Christmas so we took them to Ethel M. The boys 2 teens loved it especially the samples. The cactus gardens were lit beautifully. The whole family enjoyed it and best of all it's FREE

Do you love chocolate? I am a confirmed chocoholic and I will devour within seconds anything placed in front of me that even resembles chocolate. So, when I learned there was a chocolate factory in the Las Vegas area and it was rated highly here on Tripadvisor, I immediately added it to our family’s visitation schedule. So what is this...

Strolling through the Gardens was so enjoyable with an amazing amount of lights and decorations, (over quarter of a million we read). We loved it! When we had... More

Great tour of a chocolate factory reminiscent of the Lucy and Ethel episode! The Mexican hot chocolate, with chili, sounds unusual but is awesome and addictive. The cactus garden is a great photo spot. Their new chocolate tasting room is sure to be s great venue to bring family and friends!
