In a small bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, espresso powder and salt. Stir with a whisk or fork to combine.

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Alternately whisk in flour mixture and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; whisk until smooth.

Scoop batter into prepared pans. Place about 1 tsp of cookie dough into the center of each cupcake and press down lightly, making sure to cover dough with batter.

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until tops of cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Let cool in pan on rack for 5-8 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on rack.

Frosting Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until fluffy. Slowly add in powdered sugar, and continue creaming until well blended. Add salt, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream or milk. Blend on low speed until moistened. Add an additional 1 to 3 tablespoons of heavy cream or milk until you reach the desired consistency. Beat at high speed until frosting is smooth and fluffy.

Frost the cupcakes and decorate with mini-chocolate chip cookies and mini-chocolate chips and/or sprinkles.
