Michelle Obama has a sweet tooth for Cookie — and we’re not talking about the dessert!

Taraji P. Henson stopped by Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live where she revealed that the First Lady and President Barack Obama, like the rest of us, are HUGE fans of her hit show Empire!

The 45-year-old explained that when series creator Lee Daniels attended the last White House State Dinner, the Obamas totally gushed about the hip-hop drama — the President even referenced an episode from season 1!

But what really got the actress fangirling was learning that Michelle was a huge fan of her Empire character Cookie Lyon — a fact Henson could not handle!

Watch the interview (below) to hear the full fan-girling story!

Speaking of Empires, Kimmel will strike back this year with his annual tradition of dressing up on Halloween with a Star Wars themed show — complete with full crew costumes and special guest Harrison Ford!

Watch Jimmy Kimmel live on October 31 to see Han Solo himself!
