What is your bet?

How do you think the customization buffer does it?

Do you know about C-h -k ?

Since the customization buffer saves these variables when you type C-x
C-s, you can learn what command is called by typing in a
customization buffer:  C-h k C-x C-s

In the help buffer giving the help about that command, you can clic on
the link to the command source, and there you can read it and find
what function is called to save all the custom variables.  Go see the
source of that function to check that it does exactly what you want,
and if yes, then use it.
