About 3 cups.

Instructions:

Step 1

In large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add melted chocolate, instant coffee and vanilla; mix well. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed; scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Re-whip before using.
