History of ‘National Chocolate Caramel Day’

There are no records mentioned in history that can trace back the exact origin of caramel. However, according to historians, caramel originated in America between 1650 to 1880, when the settlers who reached America started making hard candies.

These candies were later on developed into caramel when an individual mixed fat and milk into boiling sugary water. This gave rise to a golden-colored caramel! During this time, refined sugar was inaccessible and costly, therefore juice extracted from sugar beets was used in making caramel.
