According to popular legends, carambar may have been created from a mistake by the Delespaul-Havez chocolate factory in North France. It is believed that carambar was born during a test when they were trying to make sweets from chocolate and caramel and the machine broke down. As a result, it produced rod-like sweets which were immediately named “carambar”. Since then, the carambar caramel sweet has grown exponentially to become world-famous, through its sticky caramel, unique taste, and its childish jokes.
But what is in carambars? Carambars are made of dark chocolate, whole cream, white sugar, and salt butter. In this article, you will find two delicious recipes for preparing caramel carambars. Visit frenchwink.com to place an order for these tasty bars.
- 20 carambars
- 100ml milk

Recipe for Homemade Carambars
In a bowl, mix cream, chopped chocolate, and butter – they’ll be used later. Put the granulated sugar in a non-stick pan and heat over high temperatures. Here, do not stir too much. Instead, rotate the pan, and when it begins to stick, use a wooden spatula. Once the caramel has acquired a beautiful dark color, take the mixture of cream, chopped chocolate, and butter and quickly mix with the wooden spatula.
Take the mixture and spread it into molds. If you don’t have one, use a sulfurized paper sheet. Allow it to cool for about 30 minutes, then use a knife to cut small bars. Put the barres in the sulfurized paper and allow them to stay undisturbed for a few minutes. Interestingly, you can drag a joke but take great care to prevent the ink located on the caramel side. If you let them stay for long, you will end up with caramels stuck on your teeth.
You need to keep in mind that preparing caramel tends to be quite tricky. If you do not have the necessary professional thermometers and gear, you must adhere to the recommended time and measures. Ensure that the mixture cools for about 30 minutes. If it stays for longer than that, it becomes very hard to cut and could even break.
