More than half a million pink, red, white, and purple LED lights will brightly embellish the three-acre botanical cactus garden for the days leading up to Valentine’s Day weekend.

Share a sweet treat as you stroll through the garden with your loved one or family and stop by the Valentine’s themed “selfie” opportunity with a life-sized heart-frame and brightly lit, colored cacti as your backdrop. Continue the evening in the Chocolate Tasting Room and sample fan-favorite chocolate pieces, understand the history of Ethel M Chocolates, and learn how to pick up on the subtleties in each flavor profile. 

 This year, try freshly dipped chocolate covered strawberries or venture to try the brand-new 5-piece Rémy Martin XO Cognac Truffle. The classic Valentine’s Day collection is also available in the beloved red satin heart-shaped boxes with your choice of 14-pieces or 28-pieces of Ethel M Chocolates’ signature handcrafted chocolates. And back by popular demand, spread some love to your gal pals with a set of matching Galentine’s Day “Best Friend” boxes.

This year, Ethel M Chocolates is giving away a pair of tickets to the luxury suite, with dinner and beverages included, for the Vegas Golden Knights vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game at T-Mobile Arena on February 14!

About Ethel M Chocolates

Inspired by the kitchen of Ethel Mars (which date back to 1910), Forrest Mars Sr. created Ethel M Chocolates in his mother’s honor. Using her timeless recipes, Forrest’s vision of sharing fresh-crafted, small-batch, premium chocolates was born.

Located in the heat and the heart of the desert, Forrest went to extraordinary lengths to produce their unique chocolates and fillings at his factory so that the quality of the chocolates would never be compromised. The craftsmanship and care required to create each batch of Ethel M Chocolates unchanged. Their gourmet fillings and decadent chocolates are infused with a precise blend of love, art and science, and the result is always something magical.

Today, Ethel M Chocolates are still made in small batches with no preservatives, using only the freshest and finest ingredients. Experience their specialty premium chocolates for yourself.
