Surrender to Some Sin City Chocolate for Easter

There are many benefits to having a Las Vegas blog.

First, there’s the opportunity to meet new and interesitng people (specifically, lawyers). Second, bouts with carpal tunnel mean lots of time off. Third, chocolate!

We were lucky enough to receive an Easter-themed box of chocolates from the good folks at Las Vegas-based chocolatier Ethel M Chocolates. Yes, Las Vegas has its very own chocolatier. And, as you might suspect, anything that comes from Vegas is delicious-er.

Note: We are, in all liklihood, not posting about these Easter chocolates just to, you know, get more chocolate. Probably.

Despite our initial instinct to hoard the chocolate for ourselves, we passed around the festive, egg-shaped box and determined, through an informal focus group of friends, “These are the best Easter chocolates ever.” We trust the Ethel M folks don’t mind us just going with that. Visit the official site.

Specialty Easter boxes from Ethel M include the Peanut Butter Truffle Box, with milk and dark chocolate eggs filled with peanut butter, and the Ethel M Fruit Truffle Egg Box, with a variety of ganache-filled chocolates, whatever a ganache might actually be.

There are eight Las Vegas Ethel M Chocolates retail locations, but the one we’ve found most convenient is the store at Flamingo Las Vegas (pictured below).

Fact: There is an ordinance against calorie-counting within the city limits of Las Vegas. (Or should be.)

If you’re looking for something to do in Las Vegas, don’t miss the tour of the Ethel M factory and Botanical Cactus Gardens. The Ethel M factory is just 15 minutes from the Strip. Read more.

We’re thinking that among Las Vegas vices, a love of chocolate is one of the most easily forgivable, so have a sweet-filled, relatively-guilt-free Easter!
