For Christmas, I got my granddaughter an Art Kit with all kinds of paper, colored pencils, and markers.  

For her birthday I got her a Chocolate Bomb Kits for hot chocolate.

Then I decided that the bomb kit might need some supervision so I want to get her something else.

Do most kids like trail mix?  I ask if she was allergic to peanuts and nuts and she is not allergic to those.

The trail mix that I have available is one with almonds, peanuts, cashews, M & M's, and raisins or a tropical fruit mix with banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, cranberry, coconut, cashew, and walnut.

There is also a berry that I have not tried with dried cranberries, blueberries, and cherries mixed with premium jumbo cashews, walnut halves, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and decadent dark chocolate slices.

I am leaning toward this one with individual packages:

   A delicious mix of peanuts, sunflower kernels, raisins and cocoa gems
   Perfect for on-the-go snacking
   Kar's Sweet 'n Salty mix is gluten-free
   New larger count
   40 individual 2-oz. packages

Any other suggestions?  It is hard for me to keep up with how old she is though she is about 14.

At 14 I would have liked either of those mixes most probably I would have prefered the fruity one. At 14 she shouldn't need supervision in the kitchen, so I think the hot chocolate kit should be fine.
I will say that at 14 I would have found an art kit childish though I would have been quite happy with a set of quality pencils or paints. So it all depends on how mature she is there.

Chocolate bombs were a new one for me thanks Anne! - they do look rather nice! A bomb making kit would be really cool! I agree that 14 is normally old enough to melt chocolate.
However every 14 year old is different and difficult - that in between age. I would have liked books or scientific toys at that age.....a long time ago.

Well if she is like me at that age (or my current age) then she will pick out the chocolates and then grudgingly eat the healthy other stuff...

I am glad everyone thinks she is old enough for the Bombs kit.  I had never heard of them either and when I saw the kit I thought how much fun it would be to make. And since I love hot chocolate!

Too funny, Thomas.

Since I have not seen them I looked on Pinterest. This is something like what will be in the kit:

Now, this is the way I would like to have them:
