Melt butter in a medium sized heavy pot over low heat. Add sugar, cocoa, rum, heavy cream, and salt. Stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Add instant coffee and stir to dissolve. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool somewhat, and serve while still warm or reheat for ice cream or other desserts.
Remainder should be refrigerated or frozen.
