It should last about 6 months in the fridge or a little longer in the deep freeze.HTH icon_lol.gif

You are using 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening, but what else do you put in it?

I got the recipe here from STATEN93 it's Chocolate mocha filling
1/2 c butter
1/2 c shortening
1/3 c cocoa
3 1/2- 4 c sifted powdered sugar
4 t. chocolate mocha ice java syrup by Nescafe

I didn't use the syrup because I could't find it, so i used real expresso.
does this help?

When you're ready to use it, could you beat it with some whipped cream or 'Cool Whip'- type stuff?
That would lighten the flavor some, though.

The cool-whip is a good idea, or some whipping cream, but it might turn it into more of a mousse. It seems that the syrup would be sweeter than the real expresso. May have to explore this!! detective.gif

I know it's weird eh. I thought it was a great deal of powdered sugar but I wanted to try it. I like the butter/shortening icing, but maybe I should try just the shortening. I think by adding whip cream(stuff) would turn it into a mouse type filling, but I'm willing to try. I only whip it 10 minutes or so, maybe when I'm ready I could try whipping it some more?xo

Try adding about 1/4 teaspoon salt and taste. See if that helps cut the sweetness.. you may need 1/2 teaspoon salt total.

If you switch to all shortening, whip it for about 15minutes before you add anything else. It makes an amazing difference!!! I switched from 1/2 butter-1/2 shortening - to all shortening using this method (thank you Mamawrobin!) It is amazing - I won't be going back!
