Living in Henderson has many perks! From Las Vegas to the deserts and beautiful views around Nevada, this area of our state has some of the best attractions and places to visit. But let’s forget about the desert for a second and talk about dessert –that’s much more delicious! And if you haven’t yet paid a visit to Ethel M Chocolates right here in Henderson, NV, then you’re sorely missing out! Here are three of our favorite things about Ethel M.
History and Traditions
Ethel M’s website boasts the “craftsmanship and care required to create each batch” served… and you can taste the tradition in every bite! With no preservatives, fresh and fine ingredients, and love and care put into packing each box by hand, this chocolatier is set apart. The place has been around since 1981, but the recipes are inspired by tradition from as far back as 1910!
Classics, Seasonal Favorites, and Customized Variety
Whether you’re looking for a bark—the pecan brittle is to die for—or a traditional assortment, you can find something for your taste buds here. With seasonal collections—Easter is coming up!—and rotating flavors, there’s always a variety to try. And, of course, you can customize your own box that you design based on what you’re craving!
The Botanical Cactus Garden
Heading to Ethel M Chocolates means you also get to see Nevada’s largest cactus garden – a whopping four acres of unique beauty! With cacti and other plants native to the Southwest and indigenous to other regions, taking a stroll through the garden and exploring the terrain makes there a whole lot more to see than just the (equally amazing) chocolate viewing tour!
