Is there supposed to be chocolate in this recipe?

Mocha is actually a type of coffee bean in the arabica family. It is not a chocolate flavoured coffee bean. Aside from that, mocha frosting is delicious and a common European flavouring.

I have made mocha filling lots of times and everyone loves it.. my recipe is very similar to this one but I add 2 tbsp. of cocoa to it.. it is one of my best sellers.. just thought I'd let you all know, since you were wondering about the chocolate aspect :)

Thank you so much! I was looking for a filling for my chocolate cake with Kahlua and vodka. This is it! (i just hope it tastes good) ;)

I used this for filling a coffee flavored cake with chocolate frosting. My family loved it! :)

Tried this recipe today. I had a double layer chocolate cake, filled it with this Mocha filling. I frosted it with the Butter Cream Dream recipe I found on C.C.

I then make a dark chocolate collar to surround the cake. I piped the mocha filling on top and stuck home made chocolate leaves in the filling.

I love how light this recipe is, with a nice hint of coffee flavor. The perfect complement to the icing and the chocolate.
