The recipe as is, is good for a very small cheesecake. I used an 8' pan and the cheesecake was about 1' tall. You'll need to use a smaller pan unless you prefer thin (short) cheesecakes. Or the recipe lends itself to 1-1/2 or doubling for a regular size cheesecake. If you do increase the ingredients in the main cheesecake, leave the chocolate portion the same for marbling. Very easy to follow and not a bad choice for first timers.
