Let’s talk chocolate.
A hunk of artisan chocolate that melts in your mouth, a velvety river of chocolate fondue made to flow over skewered fruit and baked goods, it’s all so delicious to think about. If you love chocolate, you already know that there are a ton of different ways to consume it.
Now that legalization efforts are tearing across the country, cannabis edibles are being manufactured at a higher level than ever before. Chefs, growers, and scientists are coming together to produce the best-tasting (and most potent) edibles cannabis lovers have ever tried.
The next time you’re in the mood to get stoned, kick it old school, and try a chocolate edible. It’s the best way to thrill all of your senses at once.
Here Are The Top 10 Chocolate Edibles In Las Vegas
1. Chocolate Cake Bites by The Apothecary Shoppe
Seeing each plump cake ball nestled into its box is enough to make the average chocolate-lover drool in anticipation. Thick smears of gooey frosting cover each cake ball. Tiny silver spangles and swirls of chocolate act as decoration. These cake bites are so good, stoners will happily fork over $30. The grassy marijuana flavor that usually clings to infused edibles is nonexistent. Instead, each mouthful coats your tongue with silky chocolate flavor.

2. Cheeba Chews by Deep Roots Harvest
Cheeba Chews are GOOD. Each little nugget tastes like a grown-up Tootsie Roll. Pop one (or two) into your mouth, if you just want a small buzz, or eat the whole pack at once if you’re an experienced stoner looking for an off-the-wall high. Deep Roots Harvest makes a variety of different Cheeba Chews, but the only kind that matters is chocolate. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but still. You should experience the chocolate chews before branching out.

3. Brownie Bites by Qualcan
Brownies are “kings of the edible world,” in my opinion. Think about it. Their plump, fudgy cake is the perfect vehicle for marijuana goodness. In the hands of a master, your taste buds won’t be able to pick out the THC. Qualcan’s brownie bites satisfy your stoner cravings every single time. Instead of one huge brownie, Qualcan delivers ten miniature chunks. Which make it perfect for microdosing.

4. Honduran Oro Maya Chocolate with Sea Salt 75% by Binske
In the mood for something fancy? Try a bite of Binske’s intriguing Honduran Oro Maya chocolate bar. The candy is daubed with small flecks of salt. This is the kind of edible that was almost impossible to find in the marijuana prohibition era. You need a chocolatier to develop these flavors, that’s for sure. The only drawback is that it’s easy to scarf down the whole thing at once. But hey, it’s Vegas. You won’t be the only one who’s as high as the sky.

5. Medical Milk Chocolate Bar by Evergreen Organix
Nevada law restricts the amount of THC allowed in recreational edibles to 100mg. If you want a heavier dose, you’ll need a medical marijuana card. These are easy to get, but they’re not free. You’ll have to pay an upfront fee, as well as a monthly fee. However, for many patients, the cost is worth every penny. Evergreen Organix’s medical chocolate bar is five times as potent as its recreational counterpart.

6. Milk Chocolate Peanut Brittle Bar by Mindy’s Edibles
Ahh, peanut brittle. It’s an underappreciated dessert, even when it’s not infused with high-quality cannabis oil. Mindy’s Edibles produces a delectable strip of bark, that I simply can’t get enough of. This crackling piece of peanut brittle is embedded in a square of milk chocolate. This isn’t a full-size edible, mind you. It’s infused with 46.6mg of THC. That’s why you can pick it up for $14.50.

7. Raspberry Milk Chocolate by Binkse
Binkse is so good we’ve listed the brand twice. If the Honduran chocolate didn’t appeal to you, try their raspberry milk chocolate. The berry notes add a surprising depth of flavor. Eating an edible should make you feel happy and content. It hits the belly like a glass of hot chocolate spiked with spirits. Except, with this, you can consume as much as you want, without worrying about a pesky hangover.

8. Caramel Brownie Cookie Square by Vert
Ooey, gooey rivulets of caramel snake through a moist, chewy brownie. Every bite feels like an indulgence. The top of the brownie is drizzled with thin strips of chocolate, while the back is stamped with green and white THC symbols. Good luck sticking to the serving size of one small chunk. Someone could eat the whole thing in three bites if they were motivated enough to do so.

9. Sin City by Incredibles Chocolate
A plain, old-fashioned milk chocolate bar laced with THC…what could be better? This satisfies all of your sweet-tooth cravings, and then some. It’s better than a Hershey bar, in my opinion. You could slap it between two graham crackers and marshmallows for an adult S’more, if you’d like. You don’t need a fancy concoction to appreciate this fine cannabis oil.

10. 50mg Dark Chocolate Bar by Valhalla
We had to put a plain, dark chocolate bar on the list. Most stoners flock to the sugary sweetness of milk chocolate, but there’s something nice about trying different interpretations. The bitter cocoa masks every other flavor. And, because this is a half-sized bar, it will only set you back $13.99.

Las Vegas has so many dispensaries, sampling edibles could be a fulltime job.
