I made this recipe just as it was posted in the email newsletter I received and I added half a strawberry to the top for decoration. I found that the sour cream topping did not "set" as quickly as I thought it would and thus I believe I may have over-baked them. I made them in two sizes: the 2-1/2" baking cup size as well as the tiny 1" baking cup size. Both turned out sort of dry probably due to the over-baking. The taste, though, was not as good as I expected. I used Hershey's cocoa and it just didn't give any zing to the recipe. The cheesecake part was pretty bland. I believe I have other cheesecake recipes that may be a little more complicated, but have better taste.
