3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese to soften; blend in 1/3 cup sugar, the cocoa powder, eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Stir in marshmallows and almonds. Spoon into crumb-lined cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until set.
