We’d love to meet the genius who came up with the chocolate equivalent of Kraft Singles. The new product has just recently been released in Japan, and the ways to use it are seemingly endless.

The chocolate is a type called nama chocolate, which Mental Floss describes as “richer than milk chocolate, but not as sweet as fudge.” The chocolate is available in Japanese stores and can be ordered online in packs of five individually wrapped slices.

From layering it in s’mores to wrapping it in a bûche de Noël cake, there are tons of applications for these chocolate slices — but our favorite idea we’ve seen is layering them in between pancakes.

How would you use these chocolate singles?
