I use this same recipe but you can substitute 3 tablespoons of white flour for the cornstarch and I use 2 eggyolks and save the white to be used in other recipes or cooked with scrambled eggs for breakfast or make meringe. If using eggyolk, add to the cooked ingredients and omit all the beating and folding done with the egg. 

You can probably tell I raised for kids and 3 were boys. I had to learn to cook big quantities of good filling food that I could get made quickly. Necessity is the best teacher. LOL

... using an egg, like how I do.  I typically liked the cooked pudding better than instant, but the homemade instant mix might not taste as processed.

3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
3 Tbsps. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
2-1/4 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg (optional; see note)
In a 1-1/2 quart saucepan, combine the first 4 ingredients.  Gradually stir in the milk.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.  Boil for 1 minute.  Add vanilla.  Spoon into individual glasses and chill.  Serve cold.
NOTE:  If using egg, beat egg in a separate bowl with a fork.  Add 1 spoonful of hot pudding at a time to the egg, beating constantly with the fork until the egg mixture is quite warm.  Beat this mixture quickly back into the pudding.
