Default Adding Cocoa to BB Milk Stout

I am brewing the brewers best milk stout recipe kit this weekend. I really want to beef up the chocolate flavor by adding cocoa powder. I have researched it here on the forum and am thinking I will use 8 ounces of cocoa powder to the boil at 10 minutes. Thye recpie calls for .5 lbs of lactose and .5 lbs Maltodextrin. Does this sound correct? any comments are appreciated. Here is the recpie as I have it
