Brownie in a Jar

If you haven't already heard of Maisy & Grace, you must head over there now and check it out. This fabulous new business founded by the very lovely Christall Lowe is full of fabulous vintage finds and goodies!! I have had my eye on a few things for a while now! You could pretty much do all your Christmas shopping in one go!
Anyway I found this gem of a DIY over on the Maisy & Grace facebook page last week, and I'm still trying to work out how I can make this for someone and not eat it all myself. Just the ingredients alone look tempting! I've seen the pie in a jar before but this really takes the cake! And hello perfect wee wedding favour!

BROWNIE IN A JAR - The perfect homemade (and cute) gift idea ♥

This recipe fits into our Ball Quart Mason jar. Layer the following into the jar:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup cocoa
3/4 cup walnuts/pecans
1/2 cup chocolate chips/chunks/buttons

Cover lid with pretty fabric or paper, bind with twine and tie on a tag with the following directions:
Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius
Line an 18x28cm (or similar) baking tin with baking paper
Empty contents of jar into mixing bowl, mix in 3 lightly beaten eggs and 1 cup (225g) of softened butter.
Spread into baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes

I love this idea - we did cake mix cookies in a jar for my sister's bridal shower favor and she did smores in a jar for her "wedding helper" gifts!!! I'll have to find an opportunity to do brownies, now :o)

I am planning on making these brownies, and then making them as gifts. Could you tell me what 160C is in degrees F? If you don't know I can google the conversion... I'm guessing 350 degrees?
