Ethel M offers visitors the opportunity to look through our viewing aisle into the chocolate factory and Ethel Mars's Kitchen where we make Pecan Brittle, Chocolate Bark, and all of our signature fillings. Our viewing aisle window is open Monday - Thursday from 8am - 4pm, but for optimal viewing of chocolate production, mornings are best. Please note, in order to produce high quality premium chocolate, we have a varying production schedule, and can not guarantee that the chocolate factory will be producing chocolate at all times. We can guarantee that you will get the opportunity to learn how Ethel M Chocolates has been making chocolate for over 30 years, as taste some of our free chocolate samples and visit our chocolate gift shop. Choose from our premium chocolate collections or pick your favorite pieces from our chocolate cases. Ethel M makes the perfect gift for a friend or even a great self indulgence. Finish your visit by strolling our beautiful botanical cactus garden. Our botanical cactus garden is one of the largest in the southwest United States and features over one hundred varieties of cacti and exotic plants. « less

While technically located in Henderson this is one of my favorite spots in the area. Stop by and get a free sample of chocolate and walk through their gorgeous cactus garden. The chocolate is goooooooooood!!! Try the dark chocolate lemon satin. That's my favorite!

Visited during the summer and it's a nice place to kill an hour or so, watch some chocolates in production, try a few free samples and have a quick walk around the cactus gardens - 4 stars Returned at Christmas for the real 5 star experience! More neon than even a hardened Vegas visitor could imagine and a wonderful (if... More

A quick tour of the chocolate plant results in a sample at the end. (Good Chocolate btw) The botanical gardens is primarily succulents but well labeled and very interesting. During Christmas they decorate the grounds and trees with thousands of lights. A must see.

This is one of those items that were on the bucket list and every time we go to Vegas we plan on going but just never got around to it. Needless to say we finally made it, maybe if was expecting to much but we pretty much saw everything within an hour. Recommendation is to go and take time to... More

Today was brutal. So, what do you do when it's really hot and you cannot stomach another smoke filled casino?? Go to the chocolate factory! Take the time to watch the videos, the really tell the story. You even get a chocolate at the end. Two if you take the tour twice ;-) The chocolate is expensive but super good,... More

Erhel's I always a must visit when we go to Vegas. Love the Peanut Butter and Jelly, and the brittle are a must. Well worth the visit, if only to pick up chocolates!!!

I've been visiting Ethel M for many years now - It's just 20 minutes outside the city limits in Henderson, Nevada. I love to walk through their cactus gardens and photograph them. You'll see an occasional curious prairie dog or chipmunk. I also always enjoyed walking through the chocolate factory viewing area. You can watch the employees making the delicious... More

This is a great spot to visit when you're in the Las Vegas area. The factory was closed for renovation so we did not get to tour. But the store was open. Very friendly wait staff in both the factory store and M&M World. We also walked around the Cactus Garden and enjoyed learning about the different species of cacti.
