Alternatives to checklist for a single item?

Hi there, I looked around and it seems dash removed from the input the “checkbox” type and now the only way to create a checkbox is with a checklist.

is there a way to create a single input checkbox without using a checklist?

it’s not ideal because it has 2 parent divs.
but I might be able to work with it if there is a way to pass a className into the input?
not the two-parent divs the input itself

Why can’t you use a checklist with a single item?

because I need the id and the className to be on the input not on the div that contains the input
