Andes Mints Cupcakes

I was introduced to Andes Mints at a very young age.  Though, my strongest memory was not of eating them, it was of being attacked by them.
My family commonly went to a little Mexican restaurant in town, and when we finished eating we would get these mints with the check.  My two older brothers would make a sort of blow dart from the wrapper, and choose their target.  Me.
So here’s to a friendlier version of Andes Mints that we can all enjoy.
