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!

This place has some of the best chocolate I've ever tasted. It's been over a year since I returned to Ethel M Chocolate Factory. The shop did get a face lift and has a modern feel to it. But, like any improvement there's a down side. The price of the chocolates and everything else, skyrocketed!! I couldn't believe the price... More

My son surprised me with a visit to Ethel M's. Wow!! This place is a must see for chocolate lovers. You are taken on a trip with your imagination to the world of chocolate. The process is fascinating from start to finish. Even the part where Lucy and Ethel wrap the candies. Well, they weren't really there, but you can... More

As always, their display of a million lights on their cactus garden is terrific. They have also remodeled their showroom. Definitely worth a trip anytime, but especially at Christmas.

They got rid of the M&M wall and all Mars merchandise but the space is more open and there's now more room for Ethel M chocolate!! Still great tasting chocolate, there's still free samples and the cactus garden is better than ever.

There is more to Las Vegas than gambling! Get away from the rush of the Las Vegas Strip and enjoy a leisure stroll through a beautiful cactus garden. See cactus from all around the Southwest region of USA. While there visit the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. If you time your visit right, you can actually watch how some the delicious... More

You thought you knew good chocolate..not unless you have tried these. If you are around Vegas in Nov./Dec. the outside cactus garden is all decorated and lit up. It is fun for the family or my husband and I love walking through the festive garden. But don't kid yourself...I come for the chocolate! You can watch it being made in... More

I have been wanting to see the Holiday Lights at Ethel M for quite a while so I made a plan to go this year. They have lights on every tree, cactus and just about everything else in their botanical garden area. It is quite dazzling. It is not too large so it doesn't take a long time to walk... More

I go to photograph this seasonal lighting exhibit every year since they first started. Never disappointing. Always clean, colorful and fun. Plus it is free. Take your time walking all the paths and enjoy taking family photos and selfies. I've been twice this year and I can definitely tell you that getting there at 5pm, about twilight may be best....

Tired of the bright lights of Las Vegas? Head over to Henderson and visit the Ethel M Chocolates Factory and Cactus Garden, especially between Thanksgiving and New Year's. The cactus garden is decorated with thousands of lights and it is incredible to see, naturally at night. But beware, it does get cold and far too many times I've seen guests... More
