Heat on high temperature for 30 seconds, Stir to mix and repeat heating 30 seconds at a time until mixture is smooth and well mixed.

  5. While cake is baking, Place 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa in a medium saucepan. Stir in milk, a little at a time, until well mixed. Add butter and heat over medium heat, until butter is melted. Continue heating, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
