Author Notes: This simple dessert is made by pouring tempered chocolate into a loaf pan, and sprinkling on tasty add-ins. Any loaf pan will work, but I will say I have two faves: silicone pans, which will leave the chocolate especially shiny, or disposable paper pans, which are easy to pull off chocolate in even if your tempering isn’t stellar.
