Overview

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!

A quick view of the chocolate factory, but the cacti in the garden were beautiful. At Christmas time they have wonderful decorations.

This place is unique. You can tour the chocolate factory and gift shop inside which was interesting. Outside you can walk through their cactus garden and see an amazing variety of different cacti.
