Preheat oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Portion cookie dough into golf-ball sized rounds, rolling then into smooth balls with your hands. Place on prepared baking sheets and flatten the rounds with your hands, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie. Bake until crackly, about 15-18 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled.
In a small bowl, melt remaining chopped chocolate with coconut oil in the microwave using 30 second intervals; stirring until smooth. Once cookies have cooled, dip them half way into melted chocolate, then transfer to parchment lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with almonds and flaky salt. Chill until chocolate has set. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
