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!

We made a special evening trip to see the Cactus Gardens when they are decorated for Christmas. It was a wonderful time, during the week, and we highly recommend going.Great family place. 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!

We visited this place a few years ago and where amazed at the transformation that has occurred! It looks fantastic. Interesting to see the chocolates actually being made through large windows. Lots of room for everyone. The new look is appealing to the eye and there is lots of chocolate to choose from if you wish to buy (not cheap,... More

We go every year to Ethel M over the holidays to see their amazing Christmas light display. It seems to get better every year, but this year was absolutely incredible!! They've recently remodeled, and expanded the facility (or at least it seems that way). There is a free tour, chocolate sampling and, of course, a beautiful walk through their gardens.... More

Very impressed with the holiday lights here. Very creative and pretty. If you have the time it is worth the trip to see especially around the holidays. Chocolate is expensive. Staff was friendly, so neat ideas to capture a family photo as well.

Every year we go to the Strip to see the Christmas displays...water shows and get into the neon spirit of Christmas. We always end it with a short trip to the Ethel M Cactus Garden. Free walking tour through some beautiful displays and of course you can do a short tour and get some wonderful chocolate before or after. They... More
