Easy Chocolate Bits & Walnut Ice Cream

I've had this recipe for 17 years (long before I owned an ice cream machine), and can't recall where I got it from. Since this ice cream is frozen in a loaf pan, no "ice cream making equipment" is needed. Cook time = approximate minimum freezing time, depending on your freezer.

This was quite good. I used margarine as a substitute for butter and unsalted plain pistachios(not toasted) as a substitute for toasted walnuts. I liked the colour and the overall appearance of this alot. I felt that the taste of whipping cream overpowered the other ingredients like for example, the chocolate chips and pistachios. That's the only reason(on the taste) for my review being a four-star one and not a five-star one. The kids I served this too said it was nice and made me pack some for them to take home and enjoy the next day after school in the afternoon:)
